Photographer's Note

Nose Hill Park
A large hill in the middle of Calgary, Nose Hill Park is 1127 hectares (2818 acres) of natural environment. It is the largest municipal park in Canada. There are a few trails throughout, most mainly made by years of people treading the same ground, making it popular with walkers and mountain bikers. The park provides a look at what the land known today as Calgary may have looked like at one time, featuring over 66 native plant species, such as crocus, sage, golden bean and rough rescue, which is considered endangered. Wildlife also thrives; there are approximately 200 identified species.
