High Level Bridge, Edmonton

What a trip to Alberta: I bagged two High Level Bridges.  The one in Lethbridge is longer, higher, more imposing overall.  This one, I’ve known since I was young, and that counts for something.

I tried standing in two places, and would like to try some more.  Maybe on a nicer day . . .

    Do they still pump millions of gallons (or 4.5 times as many litres) of water off the High Level Bridge each summer to create Edmonton’s own Niagara Falls?

      Jim T – Well, I don’t know. Wiki says it was in abeyance as of 2014 (environmental concerns and cost), but it doesn’t have any more-recent update.
