A couple of night shots from this evening.

Downtown St. John's on the left (the West End as well as the City of Mount Pearl and the suburban towns of Paradise and Conception Bay South are all directly behind downtown), and the East End of St. John's extending to the right.



And some homes at night.

Edmonton's Strathcona. An incredible neighbourhood, I wish I had a much better camera.








The newest gay bar in Alberta, Evolution Wonderlounge. One of the few good experiences I've ever had with a gay club, very fun times!




The Garneau Theatre and art deco historic facade, taken this morning from the Urban Diner on 109 Street.

Both of these look like they're out in the country somewhere.

Any hood with a Governor's Pub can't be bad. Thanks for sharing.

Great little town. I've eaten at that pub a couple times.

Some pictures of Sault Ste. Maire.









Some pictures of Sault Ste. Marie Michigan if you are interested.











Pictures were taken from here, the Tower of History in Sault Michigan standing 210 feet tall, completed in 1968.












Pictures by me.
If someone can tell me how to do the spoilers things so the Michigan pics only show if you click on the button that would be great, thanks.

Just tell people they're all pictures of "Sault Ste Marie", which is actually the truth... no one's going to complain, and most of us wouldn't be able to tell it's not in Canada.

If there can be Shanghai pics in the thread, I don't see why your pics would need to be spoilered.

Considering the latest Shanghai pic (which I enjoyed, thanks!) I have been thinking I should take and post a few Colebrook pics when I get a chance. It's not a border town like the Sault, but from hilltops you can see Canada.

Here's a hiking pic taken over a month or so ago, before the fall colors began. Sorry for the poor quality of the pic...

That's Mount Hereford, Quebec, in the background (qualifying this as a picture of Canada), with the Connecticut river in the foreground (in the middle of the green fields). The green fields on the left side are VT, the right side are NH.

Love that pic of the Tower of History in Sault Ste. Marie. I had no idea that structure existed - it's a very nice piece of brutalism that looks well preserved.

It's a very neat structure if you like brutalism. Sault Michigan is very tourist oriented and they keep all their attractions well maintained.
There is a museum in the bottom of the tower which is quite interesting and it's only $7 US to go in there.

Some facts about the city is it's the northern end of I-75 where its southern terminus is Miami, the city is now over 14,000 people, making it the 2nd biggest city in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. But back when the army base was open it was 18,000 people, Edison Sault one of three hydroelectric dams here if flipped on it's side is taller than First Canadian Place, and the city was founded in 1668 which is why the Tower was completed in 1968 to mark the Sault's 300th birthday.

This could only be Montreal. Nowhere else in the world.
