The 6,800-hectare blaze — dubbed the Spreading Creek fire — was sparked by a lightning strike almost two weeks ago.

It has torn through approximately 2,500 hectares of national park land, making it one of the fastest burning fires officials have seen in years.

zine | not at the mall | phase 7 | flora/fauna | rose hip
rose hips and rose petals are edible
in the same family as apples
have a bit of the tartness of crabapples
a great source of vitamin C
the best time to harvest rose hips is after the first frost (frost helps sweeten the flavour)

The forest fires are creating a “sepia” affect in Edmonton. Even the city hall night lights are on it’s so dark.

BATTLECHAT: WAS LIGHTING THE HIGH LEVEL BRIDGE REALLY WORTH IT?

choice quote:

"Ryan: It looks corny now. No one is looking at Edmonton’s lit-up bridge and thinking, “damn, now there’s a city that’s world class.” It’s more like we’re the little brother who just got neon crayons and is now drawing all over our Spongebob colouring books with them.”
