Riverwalk Trail

This hiking trail stretched from downtown Calgary to Inglewood before it changed into the Bow River Trail. By the trail, the Bow River was just a pencil line the day I returned to Calgary. But temperatures warmed and each day that pencil line stretched wider and wider with the surge of of melting ice bounding along.

I reached the end of the trail where the Bow and Elbow Rivers surged together, but all was silent because both rivers were virtually frozen when I stepped over the bridge walkway.
