Drumheller is a small southern Alberta town of about 8000 people that is most famous for it's dinosaurs! It is known as the "Dinosaur Capital of the World". Drumheller, located about 45 minutes from Dinosaur Provincial Park, is in an area of the world extremely rich with paleontological finds. The Royal Tyrell Museum is a fantastic paleontology museum in Drumheller, with hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.

But dinosaurs are not all Drumheller has to offer. The landscape is gorgeous, set in the badlands of Alberta, featuring the unique hoodoos. . There are numerous activities in the area, as well as hiking, camping and other outdoor opportunities. The sunsets are wonderufl.

One of my favorite things to do in Drumhellers is lay on the side of a hill and watch the sunset in absolute silence.
