Dry Island Buffalo Jump
June 14, 2002

For something completely different, and to avoid the rainfall in the mountains on that day, we visited Dry Island Buffalo Jump north of Drumheller, about two hours drive northeast of Calgary. There are no mountains here, but these badlands are fascinating. We had no destination but simply wandered around, taking pictures. Most photos need no explanation.

The convoluted slopes are actually dirt and not rock
