I’m a West Coast girl, born and raised. My boots are muddy 10 months of the year, I can tell the difference between a spruce, cedar, or pine cone, and I know that while seaweed is smelly at low-tide, it’s delicious on a specialty hot dog.

I’m used to damp, mossy, lush green coastal forests although the arid canyons, dusty coulees, prickly cacti and ancient fossil-filled Badlands of Alberta can make me pause in awe.

These photos were taken at Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta which is about 2 hours south of Drumheller (Dinosaur Valley and the Royal Tyrrell Museum) and 3 hour east of Calgary. I will have full coverage of this destination at a later time.

    I was there some time back and had a good time. Royal Tyrrell is interesting (http://btr.michaelkwan.com/2010/04/05/shooting-dinosaurs-in-alberta-badlands/), but smaller than I expected. If you can, take the short drive out to see the Hoodoos too (http://flic.kr/p/7QNfsB). Pretty interesting stuff.
