Drumheller

Guest Barbara

We went down to Drumheller this weekend camping. We met up with friends and had a good weekend.

The canola fields on the way there are beautiful. The landscape around Drumheller is so different to anything I have ever seen in Canada.

The museum is wonderful and well worth a visit. But I must admit the town was a little odd. They have imitation dinosaurs all over the place.

Barbara,

great! I loved it there.

So where is the obligatory picture of a car on the ferry at the western end of the route?

Harry ,

Just for you - the obligatory photo of the Bleriot ferry:

Just like Barbara, I loved Drumheller, an astonishing place:

i) A world famous museum - The Royal Tyrrell museum

ii) Lots of old history - years ago they mined coal there and today gas and oil.

iii) Once a year they have a Passion play there in an open air amphitheatre.

Oil derrick in the canola fields and the The Passion play amphitheatre

The photographs are somewhat iffy - I had to frame grab them off a video.

There ya go, Vince!

I thought I'd add my one, taken from the other side...because it shows the sign on the left, which I thought was just great! I had a really useless el cheapo point 'n click Samsung digital camera back then with just 256 colours!!
