Yesterday I decided to escape my new city of Calgary and take a Sunday drive in the country. I headed towards Cochrane, which is northwest of Calgary. Driving through the town brought back memories for me. About five years ago, while I was living in Medicine Hat (aka the Hat), Alberta, my aunt and uncle and cousin were living in Cochrane and I remember visiting them. Around Cochrane I was able to snap some nice photos of the mountains. So I invite you to join me on my Sunday drive.
I also stopped at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, which was the premiere venue of the 1988 Winter Olympics and is now a centre for training and recreational use by athletes and the public.
My last stop was a park in south Calgary that provided great views of downtown Calgary.
Thanks for coming along for the ride! Have you visited Calgary or the mountains? If so, please share your stories below. I love reading your comments!
