Zellers is coming back!

Hudson’s Bay recently announced that Zellers is coming back in the form of pop-up stores, and an online store.

You can see my photos of Zellers when it largely closed back in 2012. I also did a photo essay when Target left Canada.

On January 18, 2023, I was interviewed by CBC Radio’s The Homestretch in Calgary to talk about my photos of the Zellers closure, the sign I took, and what I think of the new stores opening.

Biking one of Canada’s largest urban parks

Fish Creek Provincial Park is the second largest urban park in Canada, and is contained entirely within the city of Calgary on the south side. It used to span the width of the city, but the city has since sprawled around it.

On bicycle, I can reach the park boundaries in just over an hour. I’ve been making the trip regularly since last summer, and can do so by staying mostly on paved pathways away from cars. This park is a key part of several 100 kilometre bike rides that I’ve done.

It’s now time to share some of my favourite photos!

Dinosaur Provincial Park

Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park is a UNESCO world heritage site located east of Calgary. It is known for its badlands topography and dinosaur fossils.

Like the Rocky Mountains and so many other attractions in Alberta, Dinosaur Provincial Park is a great place for natural landscape photography.

Weather conditions, especially the best ones for photography, can change so rapidly.

Drumheller, which is actually a couple hours away, looks similar in places and is also known for dinosaurs.

I’d like to share my favourite photos from the visit. Enjoy!
