Photographer's Note

Badlands in the valley of Red Deer river southeast of Drumheller provide some very unusual and interesting landscapes. The surface is made of slightly coagulated clouds of volcanic ash that showered the region in the geological past. When wet it gets extremly slippery and each downpour changes the appearance of the surface; small channels and grooves are formed, old are re-designed. A wealth of shapes and surfaces evolves with time.

In this park around 300 of more-or-less intact dinosaur skeletons were recovered, representing 37 different species. That is also the reason that UNESCO declared it in 1979 a world heritage site.
