I arrived too early for my lunch date today, so I got off the bus early and walked to a viewing point at the river valley. I had hoped to go down to the riverwalk and take pictures of the fall colours, but the funicular wasn’t working and it was a cloudy, snowy day. So I snapped a few shots of the view from the top and then took a leisurely walk along Jasper Avenue in Edmonton.
As I walked I took photos of various things that caught my eye, from interesting buildings to odd shelters for bulletin boards. Here is what I saw.
Lovely photos. What kind of camera do you have?

Thanks, Pat. I used my iphone for these.
Love this post and the wonderful photos! What is a funicular?
Thanks Mary Beth. It’s a kind of elevator that goes down a steep track.
You have beautifully captured Edmonton.
Thank you, Bea!
A great deal has changed and many things have not since I was a grad student there in the ’80’s. Great photos- good to see them!
I’m glad you like them, Barb.
Through your beautiful eyes I get a glimpse of Edmonton, thank you Anne!
You are welcome, Sue!
I enjoyed your pictures. I am fascinated with the diagonal pedestrian crossings. They make sense! Have you used one yet?
We had a 90-degree day in Kansas today, but it’s pre-storm conditions. Tomorrow our high will be in the ’60’s. No snow for us for a while though! It helps me remember how far north you are when I see snowflakes in your pictures.
Yep, it’s cold here! Calgary has it worse than Edmonton because they just had a huge dump of snow. It’s a mess. Count your blessing, Lorna.
Perspective! I will count my blessings, and not mumble so much about using air conditioning in October.
Nice pics, Anne. In my view, the words “experimental intersection” should not be used together in such close proximity.
They have these in New Zealand-when the light goes green, everybody (pedestrians) goes in all directions. It seemed to work for them.
So far it seems to be working well here, too. It saves everybody time.
That was great! thank you sharing your beautiful city with us! wonderful! Jane
It is a very nice city. Now that I am active again, I’m appreciating it even more.
