I spent a few hours recently touring around Red Deer. Was there for a board meeting, and had a bit of free time. It looked like a very nice town. I, naturally, was there durning the flooding, and couldn't walk down the trails, or even downtown, but I did drive around a bit, and I stopped at the Alberta Sports Museum, which Red Deer is home too. That was fun!

I saw this in the Sports Museum while visiting, and thought it was kind of interesting. It talks about a young man named Deerfoot, who ran in many races across canada. People from England even came over to race him, never winning though! He could run 5 miles in 27 minutes, in his moccasins!!!

Deerfoot Trail in Calgary, which is a scary road to drive, is named after this guy.

Pretty interesting, hey?! See, you can learn things at museums!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:clean, friendly people

    Mr. Deerfoot was quite a guy--"fleet of foot" one might say. Have a great 2006!

    What a fun place to visit. Nice page, nice hotel. Glad someone stayed up late enough to feed you there.

    I like the name "Red Deer" for a town. And interactive museums are the best!
