Photo Blogging Challenge – Blue (November 2017)

This month’s photo blogging challenge features blue – the most common colour in my world thanks to the broad prairie sky overhead, its reflection in rivers, ponds and lakes, and the extensive use of blue-tinted glass in Calgary’s newest office towers.

The one constraint I imposed was to take all photos in downtown Calgary, since last month’s PBC post featured photos from Canmore. Please click through to enjoy urban variations on blue…

Rotary-Mattamy-Greenway

Cycling Adventures on the World’s Longest Urban Pathway System

Thanks to the multitude of community partners backing the Rotary-Mattamy Greenway, Calgarian’s have pathway access to more neighbourhoods than ever before. Wondering where to start your exploration of the Greenway? We offer up five recommendations based on pedaling more than 500 km on Calgary pathways over the last six weeks. We also share advice on which areas to avoid – at least until the final construction phase is complete. Once the missing bits are finished, the Greenway is gonna be truly awesome! We might even try to ride the whole thing in one day!

Cycling the Bow River Pathway

After ride up Highwood Pass, we opted for something considerably easier for our next bicycle outing: 34 km (mostly) along sections of the Bow River Pathway in Calgary. It just naturally evolved into an art and architecture tour centered around 3 main stops.
