Badlands Beckon

Spontaneity saved my Saturday! When the body isn't quite there in one case and in the other case wanting to save the body (that's me saving myself for a 10km race tomorrow morning) then it is an opportunity to exercise the mind instead of the body. The Badlands beckoned my Buddie and he put the offer out there to seize Saturday with him.

We spent two hours wandering and wondering through the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. The place is thought provoking, I was filled with questions!
There was lots to learn!
I got to climb!
Outside was fascinating!
Inside was intriguing!
On a day that was grey, we still managed to find color!
Only 90 minutes from Calgary in the opposite direction from the mountains, it felt like we were in a land so far from anything civilized, like something on another planet! That reminds me, the original movie "Planet of the Apes" was filmed here. If anyone ever visits my neck of the woods, I would recommend dropping by Drumheller in the Badlands.
