|Arm out of the cast - YUCK.|
We have caught up on the washing so now it's time to pack the car again and this time we are heading south. through the badlands of Alberta. First stop is to Drumheller - home of the Royal Tyrell Museum where loads of Dinosaur specimens have found a home. Kids LOVED it!
The Badlands of Alberta at Horseshoe Canyon was another really interesting spot.
The Hoodoo's - south of Drumheller.
The Atlas Coal Mine near Drumheller. It has been closed for many years now but at it's prime provided an essential resource for the now very small communities around this area.
We took a drive along a road that had 11 bridges to the small town of Wayne - population 27.
Unfortunately the pub was closed.
Hiking in the Dinosaur Provincial Park. The kids were hunting for fossils as many of the exhibits at the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller were dug up here. It's also Rattlesnake country so I had my eyes peeled too.
Medalta Pottery at Medicine Hat in Alberta's south. Still make a few sample pieces for the gift shop but this place had most of the porcelain shipped all over Canada for ceramics, bricks and toilets.
The World's Largest Tipi at Medicine Hat
So ends our our Spring Break :(. We saw loads of interesting things from snow capped mountains to dry arid regions. The boys have learnt so much over the last 10 days about other cultures, seasons and industries. We have loved it - bring on summer! We still have so much to explore of Canada.
