"Writing-on-Stone" Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park by csistok

Land of Swiss Cheese and Mille Feuille

Writing-on-Stone reminded us of the Badlands around Drumheller, but there are more and stranger rock formations to be found. Some look like swiss cheese, some look like mille feuille pastries, most are too fantastic for mere words to describe. There's a trail that took us about 2 hours to complete at an easy pace. Plenty of photo ops. Children, I bet, would just love clambering all over the other-wordly hoodoos. There's history here too: ancient petraglyphs and pictographs left by the Natives who once inhabited this area. Spend some time here and you understand why this place was sacred to them. (But please, don't be ignorant by defacing the rock art like some other visitors have done!)
