We are in Drumheller having visited the Royal Tyrrell Museum http://www.tyrrellmuseum.com/ Tuesday, and participated in a prospecting session Wednesday.
Drumheller is in the Badlands of Alberta. The approach was interesting as we drove east from Calgary seeing nothing but plains and then quickly descending into the Badlands. It is like a big broad canyon closed on all sides.
The prospecting session we attended involved a 3 kilometer hike with a stop to look for fossils (I was fortunate enough to find a bone fragment - it had to be from a dinosaur!)
Today we will head west toward Banff Natiocial Park and the Canadian Rockies
