My Instagram Week(end)
It's the end of Spring Break and we took the kids on an adventure. An almost 4 hour drive south in blustery winds (very common in S. Alberta) and we finally reach our destination, Writing on Stone Provincial Park. In all there were over 250 photos taken over the 3 day adventure and these are some of my favorites!
As always (OK so since the summer) my Super Hero Mickey guides the way and takes on the bugs. We have our little Canadian flag to warn the Americans while traveling south that we have no idea where we are.
As we travel, everyone has their own space to stretch out. My daughter, having just woken up from her evening nap (she was working during her Spring Break) was quick to make sure she hid before the shutter clicked. Me and my 3...
My beloved 2nd home, my 31ft motorhome nestled along the Hoodoo's. This motorhome has taken us far and kept us safe. It's been through countless US National Parks, 7 (for now) States, 2 Provinces. It's been to Vegas twice, Disneyland, Grand Canyon, climbed to over 12,000ft and below sea level.
The Milk River runs through the park. We took a 2.5KM walk to view the carvings dated over 130 years ago by the Blackfoot Indians. They depict Bison, bear claws and a great battle between tribes. It was amazing.
As the sun goes down my oldest son and our adventures, tired puppy run the path along the top of the Hoodoo's.
My youngest has just discovered on his own the erosion process the Hoodoo's. The constant wind and weather break down the softer earth exposing the harder sandstone. In one of the holes he found it full of sand. After explaining this process so many times over the years it was great to see him experience it like this.
Above the Coulee the plains are stretched out. Here I caught the sun just setting. In a few months these fields will be waves of golden wheat.
My beautiful family heading back down the path to the campground and ice cream.
For almost 10 years we have called this Province home. We live so close to here and yet have never come. Always we say we should come and explore but never have. So, it was great to finally venture into this part of the Alberta Badlands. Everyone loved it and we walked so many times each day.
Had we not come we would have missed out on all this. Now it's off to the next spot to explore in May when the snow has cleared enough. More of their heritage to discover!
