What is the complex of buildings in the Calgary photo just north of the river and to the left? It looks like a university campus but thought UC was further to the west.

Calgary's skyline is coming along nicely, and bulking out.




I like the rather hilly topography around Hamilton. Thanks for posting this as we don't see enough of this city:

Calgary most impressive for city size (metro) and degree of isolation.

I've never thought of Calgary as being isolated but I suppose it depends on the lens upon which one views things. For me Rankin Inlet is isolated and Calgary is smack dab in the populated south.
