Into the Badlands

On Sunday Zoltan and I took off to Dinosaur Provincial Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site about 40 min northeast of Brooks that’s known for the vast number of dinosaur fossils and specimen that have been found. It often gets confused with Drumheller and the Royal Tyrell Museum, but that’s about an hour from the park (and another really cool place to visit). The landscape is unexpected and unique; it’s basically huge areas of land where the clay soil has been eroded to make “hoodoos” and other really interesting landforms. There are so many hiking trails throughout and we came across caves, cacti and more.

If you’re ever in this part of Alberta you should definitely check this place out! And at the end of a few hours of hiking, make sure you grab some Foothills Creamery ice cream from the concession as a reward! 🙂

Until next time,
Lauren.
