By car today we visited Dinosaur Provincial Park. This is the unvarnished version of the Royal Tyrrell Museum out in the badlands where a lot of dinosaur fossils are found.
This is a dinosaur fossil that was left in place where it was found. I found it pleasing to see a fossil in its original location.
Here’s a reconstruction of two dinosaurs interacting in the much smaller museum in the park.
This is our brave hostess in Bassano, Arielle, with her 2-yr old daughter, Willa, and dog, Coal, at the top of a formation.
This area got the name badlands from a very limited point of view. What was bad for settlers is a fossil mine for others and a beautiful recreation area for visitors today. It’s even got the designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
