Calgary, a cosmopolitan Alberta city with numerous skyscrapers, owes its rapid growth to its status as the centre of Canada’s oil industry. However, it’s still steeped in the western culture that earned it the nickname “Cowtown,” evident in the Calgary Stampede, its massive July rodeo and festival that grew out of the farming exhibitions once presented here.

My scenic drive through Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. Photos and video footage were captured in 8-9 hours of driving and sightseeing in the park on my last 1 day visit, during summer. It's a truly amazing place, but even more so if you can stay a few days and get further off the beaten path!

Day Six of my 12,401-mile driving tour of Canada and the less-metropolitan parts of the eastern USA. My thoughts on online teaching... Nikon Coolpix W300 sitting on a tabletop tripod on my dashboard as I whizzed along Alberta Highway 35, the MacKenzie Highway, cruise control set at the speed limit (~100 km per hour). Caution: may induce drowsiness!
I apologize for the long wait, I've just been a lot more leniant than normal. As you can tell, we have snow and everybody here have no concept of staying on the right side of the road, turn their lights on when it's pitch dark out and don't know how dangerous the roads can be when they are covered in snow and ice. Enjoy! Also let's not forget to honour Remembrance Day here in Canada & Veterans Day in the United States of America. Intro Song: My Favourite Accident by Motion City Soundtrack I'm not a perfect driver, I make mistakes too. Camera distorts speed and distance. Please look Alberta traffic laws before making criticisms. Swearing and honking will occur. I don't the own the rights to the music in this video, they belong to their rightful artists.

When one of the world’s most outrageous sports cars arrives in one of the most dramatic and picturesque settings on earth — Canada’s Alberta Province — a high-octane journey is guaranteed. But host Arthur St. Antoine does much more than simply wring-out this very special GT-R. While exploring the Canadian Rockies, he delves deep into a cave, climbs a glacier in a huge snow coach, takes several wide-eyed passengers on full-throttle launch-control blasts, and even tries out Nissan’s ultimate speed machine in “ranch” mode! It’s a round-up you won’t want to miss!
