More Edmonton

We spent Friday working on the coach.  Saturday, we headed into Edmonton to see the city and take in what is now billed as the world largest shopping center/amusement park complex. 

Situated on rolling hills and the west branch of the Saskatchewan River, Edmonton is a beautiful, very modern city.  The Edmonton Mall is overwhelming, to say the least, but is well worth a visit, if to do nothing other than people-watch.
