Cross - Canada. Medicine Hat

I did not have much time to spend in Med Hat, but I think I probably got one of the best views of the town with the city hall and 170 foot high St. Patric Parish Gothic church.

According to its website the church "is said to be one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in all of North America. Its design was inspired by the medieval cathedrals in Europe".

It is over a 100 years old. It was build by using "novel building methods including a continuous pouring of concrete, from the bottom of the foundation to the top of the highest cross. This was achieved by a large motor-driven concrete mixer connected to a tower elevator.

The concrete was hoisted by drum-and-cable and delivered to any part of the wall by large conveyor pipes. In 1912, all of this was achieved without the benefit of modern transit mix or concrete pumps".

The amount of cactuses around Medicine Hat is huge.

I had to be careful choosing my every step.

Another interesting site of Medicine Hat was the world`s largest Tee Pee.

It is 215 feet tall, and was built and set in Calgary for 1988 Olympics.

It stood in McMahon Stadium, and was moved to Medicine Hat three years later!

There are a few pictures of the area around Med Hat City Hall and its downtown.
