Dinosaur Provincial Park is home to the largest badlands in Canada. People often think of the Drumheller area for badlands and overlook Dinosaur. Badlands can be common in some parts of the world but in Canada are very rare. Most people visit the badlands in the summer, but they are still interesting to explore in the winter. Added bonus, far less people. We only saw one other car during our visit. The trail starts just behind the visitors center and climbs up the valley.
The trail passes through some very interesting scenery.
The views expand as you gain elevation. The route in this area is marked by stones on either side.
The clay here is very slippery when wet. Be careful not to slip or damage the environment.
The different layers and formations are fascinating.
Traditional Summit Selfie!
From the top, it seems like the Badlands go on forever. Unlike this post, which ends here.
