Canada Day #16

Today we went into `down town' Calgary. This was exciting for many reasons. Firstly I imagined it being like New York, given that It has some pretty big sky scrapers. Secondly It has a huge observation tower which we were going to ascend.

Here is the tower itself.




And here is the view through the glass floor at the top :s



These are a selection of my best photos taken looking down on Calgary.










The following two photos are of street level Calgary. The over ground tunnel is called a 'plus fifteen' as in plus fifteen feet above street level.



In the afternoon we went to Calgary Zoo which housed some pretty hardy animals, since most were outside all year round:







At night time during the festive period, the zoo is adorned with lights in a spectacle known as `zoo lights'
