April 18, 2013 – Photos of the Week: Dinosaur Provincial Park

Last summer we made a weekend trip down to Dinosaur Provincial Park. This was my first visit to this park famous for its fossils and topography. It was certainly interesting to see the arid badlands up close and personal.

What was surprising was there was this diverse ecosystem of grasslands, badlands and river surrounded by our Alberta prairies {Wiki}. We are quite lucky to have such diversity within our provincial landscape!

Other than the stunning landscape I have to say the other thing I remembered most about the Dinosaur Provincial Park was the vicious mosquitoes. I swear these annoying little beasts with wings were also descendants of the Jurassic era! Layers and reapplications of OFF! with barely a moment’s reprieve! Seriously!

It was so bad that I actually had troubles fully enjoying the ambiance of this amazing park! They were so pesistent that I even had trouble obeying the “Watch where you step signs- Beware of Rattlesnakes” because I was so busy swatting the little “raptors”!

Other than that it is a beautiful and amazing park, and I highly recommend it to anyone. Just bring OFF!, citronella candles, and wear copious amounts of clothing layers!

Below are 7 of my favourite images from this photo session.

  1. Great photos. If you ever get the chance, you should visit Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park, it’s a photographers dream!

  2. Nice collection! Thank you for sharing.

    p.s. Regarding the roasted almonds which were slightly done, but are still taste very good. I like them but Mom said I shouldn’t give them to you this time because she afraid that you may get sick by eating them…I think she got some weir idea. Anyway, that’s your Mother being very protective.
