Drumheller is situated in the Canadian Badlands, a 90 minute drive from Calgary.
On approaching the town, we noticed the landscape change dramaticaly. It was entirely different to anything we had ever seen before. This was dry land with layer upon layer of different colour.
We had booked into a B&B at Munson, so this meant that we had time to explore this area, I was so glad we had the time.
We visited two canyons, Horse-thief and Horseshoe Canyon, saw amazing Hoodoos which are creations of sandstone that has been sculptured by wind and rain.
Drumheller is also the home of the World's largest Dinosaur, one which you can climb up inside for views. The information centre is located here too!
The Royal Tyrell Museum on Dinosaurs would have to be one of the best Museums I have ever been to, and it was so reasonably priced, what a great deal!
Expect to see hundred's of Oil wells in this area.
