Badlands

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 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.
