Hanging with the Locals

Jennifer, Danielle and I were hiking in Dinosaur Provincial Park northeast of Brooks, Alberta, when we discovered this natural arch and crevasses in a dead end canyon. Some of the locals were also present(Prairie Rattlesnake). Jennifer and Danielle are both experienced rock climbers. So they climbed and I shot photos. See the archives for other photos shot at Dinosaur Provincial Park. The field station for The Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta is located here. This park is considered to be among the richest fossil sites in the world. Because of the abundance and diversity of dinosaur remains, the rich environments for plants and animals, and the spectacular badlands , Dinosaur Provincial Park was declared a World Heritage Site in 1979.
