Dry Island Buffalo Jump
Alberta Provincial Park
June 14, 2002

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


We wandered around looking at anything that caught our eye


I climbed into a hole (mouse over for a close-up)


I think of the hoodoos at the bottom as the "Seven Dwarfs"


Cactus


The convoluted slopes are actually dirt and not rock


Fossilized dinosaur bone fragments
