Default Around Edmonton

I was walking around Edmonton with my camera in hand and here are some results.
The Anthony Henday wildlife pass-through.


The Edmonton under-world.


Can you guess which way I'm facing?




The Fort Edmonton Bridge.


The Anthony Henday Bridge over the North Saskatchewan River.

Lots of graffiti on that one pass there.

Yes, I did notice some down there. I don't mind if it stays in the lower level but those with less talent and no discretion used the pedestrian level.

I like good graffiti and whoever was tagging that bridge deserves to be beat.

Edmonton has relatively little graffiti compared to most major cities. In Europe and Australia, it's everywhere! Same with Toronto and Montreal. There are some decent graffiti areas here, though - the LRT tunnel leading into Churchill Station comes to mind.

Great pictures! Looks like I'll have to go check out the Fort Edmonton bridge.

Whereabouts on the Henday is that wildlife underpass, if you don't mind me asking?
I was on my bike over by the pedestrian bridge under AHD between Terwilliger and Cameron Heights, but didn't see the underpass anywhere around there.

It's near rabbit hill road (east of it) on the henday. There's not much of a trail system that it connects with YET.

Default Directions

There are no connecting trails to it other than rough trails through places you wouldn't want to bike. Here are the directions whether by car or bike.

Drive west on Ellerslie Rd. Soon after the road dips down toward the Whitemud Ravine there will be a small turnout on your right. If you see the cemetery on your left you went too far. There is often a car parked in that spot and there is only room for one or two cars at best. Park or bike to there and walk north or away from Ellerslie and you will see it.

If you can't park there, keep going and just after the road starts to go up, you will see a larger area to park. Park there but you will need to walk a bit further and cross the creek. It will go better if you cross the creek on Ellerslie.

Click on the original image location and you will see the coordinates and a map or simply go to www.photographsbyglen.com and click on one of the images for the map. You will want to explore for quite a while. One caution is that the area has become the local dumping ground for people who don't want to pay $10 to get rid of their mattress or appliance or engine or whatever. It is still worth a go.

I've said it before and I'll never stop saying it. Edmonton has as many or more beautiful man made things as Calgary but Edmonton constantly and consistently hides them (with the possible exception of the Talus Balls). I mean, if you folks haven't even seen this place, and it is extraordinary, what more proof is that of my build it and hide it theory. Even the Fort Edmonton bridge (which really isn't that close to Fort Edmonton) is quite well hidden.

^ the fort Edmonton foot bridge won't be hidden for long, and will be a major connecting point for trails in the west end...

note the yellow line on this map http://cameronheights.com/how_to_get_there_map.html

Does that mean there will be two new bridges that close together?
