      Hi John,

      It’s good to hear from you! I don’t envy you being in Calgary, especially after reading what the metal trees in these pictures are used for. It would be interesting to see comparative shots of these areas during the winter, but I imagine it’s too cold to take a camera outside without having the lens freeze.

    Wow, a friend of mine is from Calgary and from everything he’s told me, I always pictured Calgary as very woodsy and “country”. NO idea that it is in fact quite modern! Thanks for shedding some light! Looks pretty darn nice!
