Fort Calgary

Last Saturday we took a walk down to Fort Calgary, which doesn’t really exist, but it has a rather interesting museum anyway… Fort Calgary was established in 1875 as Fort Brisebois by the North-West Mounted Police. It is located at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers. It didn’t cost too much to go around and has the chance to dress up as a Mountie… which didn’t really work for me given the costume was a bit small (if you really need to see this photo see ).
