From there we wanted to visit Head-Smashed in Buffalo Jump. We had read about this place before we had left Australia and were curious to find out more. So we went. Ali full of pain killers and the boys frightened for her, we found out about how the first nations who inhabited the land would herd buffalo off the cliff to their death. They would then use all of the buffalo for their homes, food and tools. A very interesting place.
The 5 hour drive was a long one but a few scenic spots along the way kept us enjoying the drive. The wind farms, the grain silos, the wildlife (namely gophers and a few deer) and the Candy store at Nanton were highlights.
Thankfully home and the next week involved doctors visits, x-rays and sleep.
