I usually keep my eyes up, but do glance down from time to time. These are on the sidewalk in the town of Banff. Probably not functional manhole covers, but "art under the feet".

Those are not just beautiful, but functional in another way...if not as utility covers, then as guides for pedestrians. Do all the streets have them?

This looks like the kind of place it's so easy to drive past, unknowing, unless someone tells you to look for it and be rewarded. One of the reasons I sometimes like to "shunpike!"

I learned a new word this morning, a good one! I suppose in relation to an interstate, it is indeed, shunpiking. But in the foothills, Hwy 49, the road over the new bridge, is the main artery through the area. All things relative.

Well thought chase from TravelRob. Good clues and interesting history to this area. Surprised to find that in France it's just called a KFC .

I was very surprised Garry to see a PFK sign instead the KFC. When it comes to fast food chicken though in that part of the world, there's no place like Dixie Lee.
