The overnite stop was in Medicine Hat (home of the world's largest teepee and not much else). The weather was alot cooler at nite and we could sleep with the windows open!
On Wednesday morning we left and set out for Calgary with a stop at the "Dinosaur Provincial Park" enroute. This park was worth every bit of the 30 miles out of our way that we had to go. They actually are still digging up dinosaur bones here....lots of fossils.....
It looks like you are on another planet when you are here. See the pics.
Anyway you can go on an all day dig for fossils with a guide, but we opted to forego the Indiana Jones bit and do the 1 hour self guided hike.
Great fun and a good climb too.
After the park we continued on to Cochrane (north of Calgary ) and spent the nite on the Bow River in a campground there. No pics of Cochrane yet but stay tuned.....
