It's hard to get lost when there's only one road.

At a gas stop I asked somebody where the events were held for the 1988 Olympics in Calgary (It's hard to believe it was that long ago. I'm so old!). He said some events were held at a
ski resort in Banff. For many of the events they built a park to the east of the city with man-made ski slopes, toboggan runs, and so forth. The park is now open to the public. I stayed on the west side of the city and didn't see the winter park.
Calgary itself is a busy modern city. The size of the buildings in the skyline reminded me of Columbus, Ohio. Unfortunately I did not find a good place to stop to get a photo of the skyline. I am actually stopped for the night about 20 miles south of Calgary at High River, Alberta.
