Edmonton

I've been living in Edmonton since May, 2011. Although there are no mountains nor beaches nearby, you still can find places to exercise. This folder covers city of Edmonton and surrounding area.

Terwillegar Park (2012.1.15)
Jan 15, 2012

After about a month’s warm temperature, winter comes back to the prairie. Edmonton got about 5cm sno ...more

wfall the previous night, followed by an Arctic cold front. The temperature dropped to below -20 degree celsius even during daylight hours. With the new snowfall, the scenery is no longer spring-like. Plus, it’s a good time to practice hiking in such a cold temperature. Terwillegar Park, located 15min’s drive from home, is a popular off-leash dog park. So we did see lots of puppies, despite the extreme temperature.

Big Lake (2012.1.7)
Jan 7, 2012

This lake is the major water body in Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park, located near St. Albert, ...more

half an hour’s drive from home. Due to the warm weather, there’s almost no snow on the lake. We walked on the frozen ice for about 10km total. The major advantage of waking up early is having more daylight time, especially in winter. Since St. Albert Place is only 3km away from our parking lot, we decided to give it a visit, after the 10km walk on Big Lake’s ice surface. The trail follows Sturgeon River and is well used. There is nothing special in St. Albert Place, because the town is so small.

Whitemud Ravine S (2011.12.31)
Dec 31, 2011

Not much too say about this ravine. It's just 15-20min walk from home. I didn't want to stay at home in such a blue sky day, so I picked an easy objective nearby.

High Level Bridge (2011.12.12)
Dec 12, 2011

It's a bit boring during final exam period. I took LRT to University of Alberta campus, and walked to High Level Bridge and back.
