Day 74 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Flying into Calgary from Grande Prairie, Alberta

birds-eye-view1

This is an aerial shot of Calgary out of my Air Canada airplane window. I took an early-morning flight to Calgary from Grande Prairie (where I was visiting my sweet children) on my way back to Montreal. Rows upon rows of houses were laid out neatly like a massive embroidered doilee on the outskirts of the city. These tightly-packed residences must have gone on for at least 20 minutes of flight time, sprawling across what were once open fields and forests. The human impact on the environment is even more visible with the flour-like snowfall.
