Where I stayed
The day had started off in Revelstoke National Park. I took a walk in the morning, taking in the amazing views around our hotel. And I photographed one of the famous landmarks of Revelstoke. The largest carved wooden head. Seems like every place in Alberta needs the largest something or other as a claim to fame. Drumheller has the largest Tyrannosaurus statue. Revelstoke has the largest wooden head. Edmonton, the largest indoor mall (when it was built in the 80's it was the largest. Now it ranks 4th).
We entered Alberta around lunch time and stopped in Banff to look around, and find a place to eat
We waved farewell to the rocky mountains as we neared Calgary. Olivia drove us around the city, just to get a sense of the area. She stopped for a Taco, at Taco Bell, and drove along the park, beside the river, where bikers, skate boarders, and runners, exercised on this majestic day.
We entered Drumheller, late evening. The long shadows cast across the yellow fields of canola just before it added extra contrast to the gray, brown, badland canyon, we descended into. There was just enough light for Olivia and I to scan the horizon and get a great view of the town of Drumheller as we stood inside the mouth of the world's largest Tyrannosaurus Rex. What a site.
