Metal and Wood Trail

River Café, Prince’s Island Park, Calgary: The exhilarating walk along a semi frozen Bow River merges with the feisty  ambiance of  River Cafe. But as always, I must checkout the washroom and the fascinating metal tap in the Ladies washroom was a delight.






Heartland Café, Okotoks: A 1902 Baptist Church converted into a restaurant in 2009. The historic setting and décor, a dazzling huge chandelier in the middle and the wood and metal artifacts, hightails the menu of freshly baked breads and pies.

Okotoks, a boutique town situated on the banks of Sheep River, 18 km south of Calgary, was a junction point along the historic Macleod Trail stretching from Montana, USA to Calgary, Canada. The name of the town is derived from ‘ohkotok’ the Blackfoot First Nation word for ‘rock’ or the largest glacial erratic the ‘Big Rock” situated on the foothills about 7 km west of Okotoks.



Okotoks recent claim to fame was the shooting of INTERSELLAR movie at the Seaman Stadium and the Olde Town Plaza, the two places on my itinerary.

    Great take on the challenge, Trav. I’m sure that old church/restaurant was quite fascinating.

    I missed this one! I’m so sorry. It was pure coincidence I found it because I saw it in the sidebar and wondered.
