Float the Elbow

It has been H-O-T hot and B-E-A-utiful in Calgary for the last couple of weeks. Subsequently every evening when I drive home from the lab along the Bow River I enviously watch as people float in the sunshine.

Last weekend my self and too friends got out our Walmart purchased rafts and took to the Elbow River to enjoy a little bit of the sun ourselves.

We put in at Stanley Park and out at the Talisman Center...probably about 3km of river, and it took us about an hour.

It really was a beautiful way to spend an afternoon....is this a purely Calgary thing, or do other cities with rives do it too? Back in the Sault the river's to big with too many rapids for leisurely floating.

Ah summer....so nice.
