Urban-Poling

Urban Poling

I had mixed thoughts about urban poling before I gave it a try. The main benefit for someone like me is that using poles while walking significantly UPs the exercise intensity. And while I'm not willing to invest in a pair of urban poles just yet, I am open to the idea. So how will I finally make my decision? I'm planning to borrow a pair for a few weeks, to see how urban poles fit with my long-standing habit of turning every walk into a photo walk. An extended trial will give me a good feel for how easy it is to keep track of 3 things (2 poles + 1 camera) or whether I'd be happy shifting the focus of my walks away from photography to more of an aerobic exercise.

Biking in Griffith Woods

Griffith Woods is a beautiful Natural Environment Park located just off Highway 8 in southwest Calgary. The park was created in 2000 and named after Wilbur Griffith who, with his wife Betty, donated a portion of their estate to The City of Calgary to be set aside as a nature preserve. It's a great place to ride bikes, walk and go geocaching.
