An afternoon walk at Fish Creek
We went on a walk around [Fish Creek provincial park] the other day (we basically followed one of the walks in [Calgary’s Best Hikes and Walks by Lori Beattie] – I’ve mentioned a few of these walks before here). Fish Creek Park is a provincial park located in the southern part of Calgary, but is easily accessible from the C-train. Actually I say easily, its badly sign posted from the station and is around a 10 minute walk – then again its not too bad. Its quite nice having such a huge sanctuary for wildlife in the city. Anyway, we had quite a nice walk – especially since the doom and gloom of the morning picked up and the Sun came out to play.
We got to see a couple of deer and coyotes… you can just about see the deer in this photo:
One of the coyotes came up close (at the time we thought they were just foxes, but after some research I’m convinced that they are coyotes..)
Near the end of the walk (well on the way out.. we had to walk back too) we came to the Bow Valley Ranche house, which was quite nice looking:
The only problem we had was the walk back, which was ok but I think the paths don’t quite follow the map we had (since there was a flood the other year things appear different) and well we ended up heading for the other train station, oh well. I probably needed the exercise.
