Since it was so freakin nice out yesterday, 12°C !, I decided to use this opportunity to finally lace up my skates. After getting them sharpened at the Olympic Oval last weekend I had run out of excuses not to. So downtown I headed to Olympic plaza. having never been there before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The rink is lower then street level and there is plenty of seating all over the park. But the best part, besides the skating, were these cute little prairie dogs poking up out of the sides. They’re a fun and eclectic part of downtown Calgary that I was delighted to discover!
Conclusion: Sometimes you can find a piece of the prairie right downtown and FYI prairie dogs are one of my fave animals at the Calgary Zoo!
