Fort Edmonton

We decided to take a bit of an impulse-trip to Edmonton, staying overnight in a hotel and visiting the Edmonton Temple. Friday evening's planned activity was swimming in the hotel pool, but we visited the Fort Edmonton historical park until the 4:00 pm check-in time. Over the course of the last 30 years they have completely rebuilt the fort to look authentic and it is very impressive. Various streets in the park represent different periods in Edmonton's early history, going back as far as 1885.

In trying to explain how old the buildings were, I told Scott they were older than any people that he knows. I asked him, "Who is the oldest person you know?" I thought he might think of his great grandparents. He said, "Jesus."

Well, these buildings aren't quite THAT old.

We got to ride a vintage streetcar through one section of the park. The recent custom has been to let Scott take the point-and-shoot camera and get pictures of the things that interest him:
