Below: Notice the hill beside the Segway building. It goes slightly uphill, then does a sharp turn to the right and then a sharp turn left and a steep incline upward, although the photo does not show all the turns nor the steep angle to reach the roadway.

Note: The building on the left of Segway office is a washroom.

While waiting for their Segway tour to begin, the two RV Gypsies walked down by the water to view the scenery. Louise McKinney Riverfront Park is a prime spot for outdoor fun for plenty of reasons. For one, it's part of a system of parks that comprise North America's largest expanse of urban parkland. It also links up with the North Saskatchewan River and the Trans Canada Trail, the longest network of recreational trails in the world. Best of all, it's home to River Valley Adventure Co. and the beginning of a great Segway tour.

Time for the two RV Gypsies to start their Segway tour in Edmonton with their guide, Joe. This happens to be their 16th Segway tour ever and their 2nd Segway tour in Alberta - the first being in Calgary Alberta just a few days earlier.

Time for a slightly bumpy, yet exhilarating, Segway ride over the wooden planks of a pedestrian bridge.

Below: The Muttart Conservatory is a botanical garden located in the North Saskatchewan river valley, across from downtown Edmonton. One of the most well-known landmarks of Edmonton, the conservatory consists of three city-operated greenhouses, public gardens, as well as four feature pyramids for display of plant species found across three biomes, with the fourth pyramid hosting as a seasonal display. A fifth minor skylight pyramid lights up the central foyer. Hopefully, the two RV Gypsies will find time to visit the Conservatory when not on a Segway tour.

The two RV Gypsies have seen many birdhouses hung in parks throughout the USA and Canada, but the one shown below is very unique.

Amazing scenic greenery along the North Saskatchewan River.

Time to step off of the Segway for a few minutes, to truly admire the view, and of course for a photo opportunity.

This tour took the two RV Gypsies on small dirt trails, through grass, near cliffs, over bridges, on sidewalks by busy streets, and up and down some hills. (Remember, it was an Advanced tour). Way to go, Joe!

The type and sizes of houses seen on this tour were quite varied. No cookie-cutter houses for this town. Below is a photo of a house with multiple dimensions that the two RV Gypsies admired.
