Calgary Hike 16

This is the first of my hikes around Calgary that are suggested in the book “Calgary’s Best Hikes and Walks” by Lori Beattie. I have to say the first one was quite nice, though this is one of the easier ones and I did have a good idea about the starting and end points. What with the bits at the start and the end around the downtown I probably walked 10km and it took a couple of hours. Basically I climbed to the top of [Tom Campbell’s Hill] (by climb I mean strolled) and you get a nice view f the Bridgeland area. The most impressive building on the hike has to be the copper-domed [Ukrainian Catholic Church] which is clearly visible for most of the walk. Here are a couple of pics…

The hike ends up down at the Bow river and you are given a nice view of the downtown:
