It turned out to be a good work out on the legs! We had to come out of the ravines and that was when I could feel it in my calfs. It was a couple of hours of up and down and around and over and up again and down again, all the time going at a quick clip.

Really Close-By Escape
We are so lucky here in Calgary to have Nose Hill Park! It's an environmentally protected area in the middle of the city, only 8 minutes from my home. We spent two hours trying to cover as much of this 11 square kilometer area as we could. As we started out, our vista was the mountains to the west! They seem so close but yet are so far!Our urban hike took us through gullies and ravines where we happened upon this! The path along here was quite slippery, as you can see, plenty of snow.
