The Badlands, Alberta by George Cousins

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Another aspect of the Canadian prairies, and close to the Hoodoos I already posted, this is a section of the Alberta Badlands. You can see the multi-levels of rock and sediment formations from past ages. Easily reached by driving East from Drumheller along the road through the Red Deer River Valley. There’s also side roads that can be explored. Sony DSCF828 camera, summer of 2006.

    definitely going to make the sidetrip next time we are out west,,,,,,,,hopefully next year. Great image George

  • We were intent of visiting the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, I’ve wanted to do that for many years. If you are interested in dinosaurs, reserve at least a full day, or more. Fascinating place. The Hoodoos and Badlands are only about a hour to the east, on the road to Brooks. I forget the highway number, but you just follow the river valley. We saw some antelope but they were too fast for us, couldn’t get a photo.
    Oh, BTW, would some photos of the Museum and some exhibits be appropriate for your Prairies site? Most of the exhibits were dug up right there in the area.Wouldn’t post them unless I checked with you first.
