We went to Dinosaur Provincial Park in the evening on an organized tour. It's odd to approach it on grassy plains. The canyon lies below. Only a small part of the park can be viewed on your own. The bus took us into fascinating areas with sandstone canyons, buttes, mesas and coulees. The area was formed at the time of the dinosaurs, millions of years ago. Many dinosaur bones are found here.
The sandstone has been sculpted by water, weather and time. Rills mark the hills which are striped from the time the sand deposits and mineral deposits were being pushed in and down by the formation of the mountains to the west. Streaks of iron-laden rock seem painted on.
It is extraordinary landscape - in places not much grows as the sand and dried mud cover much of the ground.
It really looks like another world.
