Alberta snapshot: Badlands in Drumheller.

Drumheller, Alberta – Interpretive trail, Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology

My hubby and I recently spent a day with two awesome friends in the starkly beautiful Badlands of Drumheller.  If you are planning a trip to Alberta or haven’t been to Drumheller in awhile, it is well worth however many kilometers you have to drive/swim/jetpack to get there.  Make sure you at least walk part of the trail system, and tour the Midland coal mine site nearby.  And don’t forget to spend a few hours in the incredible Tyrrell Museum!


    • I hadn’t thought of that! 🙂

      Plugging away at a very busy week, so happy for the bit of rain we’re getting (but shuddering at the thought of the weeds in the garden). Hope you’re having a sunshine-filled week so far!

  1. I think the name is appropriate. Badlands of Drumheller. It has a certain feel to it. Great photo. I had no idea that cacti and sage would grow that far north. Learned something new today. Thank you.

  2. Yes, the badlands there are amazing. I went in winter, so the coal mine was sadly closed. I especially loved Wayne and Dorothy, so forlorn, yet beautiful.

  3. The badlands are fascinating. It was such a nice surprise when we visited Drumheller the first time. An exciting landscape after driving over the prairie for an hour:) Lovely capture!

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
