SUNDAY’S SPECIAL SPOT – ALBERTA BADLANDS

It has been said things happen in three’s…that is how today’s special spot was chosen. On my sister’s recent visit she mentioned that next year she will be visiting Drumheller, AB (Canada) to see the Alberta Badlands. Shortly thereafter we watched an episode of The Amazing Race Canada where the teams were in that exact place. Finally, while scoping out Facebook I saw pictures from a friend’s trip to see the hoodoos found across the Badlands.

The Hoodoos of Alberta’s Badlands


Badlands are basically eroded (soft) rocks and clay leaving incredible hoodoos, canyons and crevasses. Alberta’s badlands cover an expanse of over 90,000 square km and is riddled with fossils. From trails to dinosaurs to stunning hoodoos, the Alberta Badlands are a sight to see.
