High Level Bridge streetcar in Edmonton
On a hot June day, the High Level Bridge streetcar carried us across the deep gorge of the North Saskatchewan River from Old Strathcona on the south side to downtown Edmonton.
We strolled past the flowering plums and lilacs, past historic buildings, bracketing our jaunt with farm markets on both sides of the river.
An early dinner on the patio of the Sherlock Holmes Pub was interrupted by our flight indoors as dark clouds threatened. When it rains in Edmonton, those who don't take shelter get wet fast. Fortunately, the rain doesn't usually last more than a few minutes. In no time, it's sunny again.
