    HIKING - WHAT THE ROCKIES ARE ALL ABOUT!

    by mtncorg Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The hikes that await you in the Canadian Rockies are some of the World’s best. Imagine a more primeval version of the Alps without cows and trams going up every other mountain. These peaks are some of the most magnificent that I have ever had the opportunity to wander among. I am not one to make lists of ‘bests’ but if I did, I would have to include these peaks - both in Alberta and British Columbia. The problem with lists is that I always am amazed at what else I discover, but rest assured - the Canadian Rockies are magnificent. As such, it is kind of amazing driving north through the vast emptiness of Montana, the crowds you finally come upon. The more popular backcountry trails are well-known. Like in National Parks south of the border, you need to try and reserve backcountry campsites before getting here. For those not going backcountry, there are many grand day tours that you can take - some crowded, some lonely.

    Equipment: Boots, Ten essentials, and the guidebook, 'Don't Waste your Time in the Canadian Rcokies' at teh website below.

    Calgary Flames

    by canuckmike Written Feb 15, 2010

    The Calgary Flames are a National Hockey League team located in, well, Calgary. They were originally located in Atlanta, Georgia in 1972 then moved to Calgary in 1980. They play out of Pengrowth Saddledome which is located close to downtown and has excellent connections to public transportation. The flames have so far won one Stanley Cup in 1989 and have came close other times. The Flames logo is a "C" with flames coming from it and has basically remained unchanged since it's first use. Harvey the Hound is the franchise's mascot and was the first mascot in the NHL. Since I'm an Edmonton Oiler fan, the Flames have been my traditional enemy but I still like to see them do well. As long as it's not against the Oilers.

    Commonwealth Stadium

    The home of the Edmonton Eskimoes and Canada's national soccer stadium is the Commonwealth Stadium. For a true Albertan experience try attending an Eskimo game her late in the football season when it's snowing and everyone is huddled up in blankets. They often hold concerts here and even in 2003 it held an outdoor NHL hockey game with the Edmonton Oilers vs. Montreal Canadians. On the southside of the stadium there is a fitness center if you want to workout. There is a LRT station to the east side of the stadium for ease of access.

    Rexall Place

    Home to the Edmonton Oilers. It has gone throughout various name changes in the last couple of years but it still is an Edmonton landmark. The main reason to visit is to see an Oiler game or a practise during hockey season. It also holds various other sporting events like monster truck rallies and I have even seen a NBA exhibition game there. On the northside there is a statue of Wayne Gretzky for the fans of his. There is a LRT station (subway station) right next to it for ease of access.
