On our second day in the area of Drumheller, Alberta we decided to tour the Badland's Hoodoo Trail. We had a fairly early start on the day, but already the temperatures in the Badlands had started to heat up. I didn't know what to expect from the Hoodoo's (sandstone columns formed by erosion) because photos I'd seen made them appear quite large. Turns out, perspective can be deceiving (as in the photo where Eve appears to be climbing a bit too high). These Hoodoos aren't imposing, but they are an unusual site. The best part of the stop ended up being the hike Luke and Todd took up the side of the hill. I had my lens on full zoom and they're still little ants up there. Eve treated the lower mounds as a natural play structure, climbing in nooks and sliding down slopes. We were all a dusty mess by the end of it. I love the last photo of Luke shown here. He was so proud of his ascent. Big time adventure accomplishment my boy!
Tomorrow you'll see a post on our trip to Atlas Coal Mine.
