|Eau Claire District at sunrise|
A short day's drive winding our way down the majestic mountains to the Foot Hills nearing Calgary.
We arrive at our long time friend & ski buddy's temporary residence just in time for a good Mexican feast. ("Go West Old Man") was the phrase as Stan and Liz are relocating from Ontario. Good Move!!
The evening went quickly as we reminisced, laughed & discussed skiing, and cycling and our future ski trips. Time for bed.
Once our appetites were satisfied, we re-arranged the "Stuff" in the Jeep and headed East towards Rosebud, then Drumheller,Alberta, our next stop.
The landscape is quieter with the wheat fields in the distance.
|Royal Tyrrell Museum|
We arrive in Drumheller the home of Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, appropriately name after J.B. Tyrrell (the largest dinosaur find in the world). We have both visited numerous museums in the past; the Royal Tyrrell Museum is by far the most fascinating. We spent all afternoon exploring the remains, learning about our Earth's violent beginning millions of years ago and gazing at the skeletal creatures before us.
Now we are tired and found a small hotel in town. It's is time for bed. Tomorrow....The BADLANDS
How bad can they be?
