Horseshoe Canyon Drumheller June 5, 2020

Spring in Horseshoe Canyon just outside of Drumheller is the best time, especially if there have been a consecutive number of dry days.  Today was D Day, Drive to Drumheller!  As has been the case this past while, I got an early start, they work best for me and afford the kind of experience I prefer.  People from the two other vehicles that were there when I arrived stayed at the top to view down into the Canyon.  I went down...into the Canyon!

It was time to head off and explore!
I truly appreciate this place, it is so different from when I head west.  
I know I don't always need to be in or on the mountains to feel like I am high on life!
There is lots to see if you take the time to look!
The weather and the conditions were ideal.  It was on the very warm side once I got down in the canyon and the ground was bone dry.  The conditions made for easy rambling about.  The sky had those wispy clouds that I love so much and like for taking nice photographs.

I explored into spaces down here that I had not been before.  It was so appealing to be here this morning that I stayed longer than I had planned.  I did have water but I left all the food in the car.  While I rambled my stomach rumbled!  It was now time to head on back up.
looking back down to where I just was
Back at the top of Horseshoe Canyon the parking lot was mostly full.  Now lots of people were on their way down to do their rambling.  I found a table to settle at and devoured my sandwich, chips and apple.  This was my view to savour!
I love days like this!
Look for love and you find it!
Love in the rocks!


  1. What a contrast. The green of the valley trail surrounded by the brown's of the canyon walls.

    1. It is surprising how green it can be when it is so dry!


I'm always curious to know what your comment might be!
