|Edmonton, Alberta's capital, is dominated by
the valley of the North Saskatchewan River, which divides the city
into north and south sides. The valley forms one of the world's
largest continuous urban park areas, and has numerous recreational
trails used for cycling, walking, rollerblading, and of course
cross-country skiing during Edmonton's seemingly endless winters. The
glass pyramids pictured here are the Muttart Conservatory, indoor
greenhouses that recreate tropical and other environments.
Winter-crazed Edmontonians have been known to visit the Muttart for a
cheap escape to the tropics.
