Edmonton Region

Edmonton is the capital city of the Province of Alberta, and has over a million residents within its metropolitan area, including me. With the nearest mountains being 3 hours away in Jasper National Park, residents here have to make the best of what's available in the area. Thankfully, between the excellent park system along the Saskatchewan River Valley, numerous provincial recreation areas, and Elk Island National Park, there are plenty of great places to go for hikes or similar activities.
