Thursday morning (6/15) we left Medicine Hat, AB and had a relatively short day of driving so that we could spend time at the Alberta Dinosaur Provincial Park.

A World Heritage Site near Brooks, AB
Guided Interpretive Tours provided by Parks Canada

We took a two hour guided bus tour with a paleontologist to visit some excavation sites.  We learned a lot about the history of the Canadian Badlands on the tour.  This site has the highest concentration of dinosaurs in the world.  And, just think…Thirty years ago this week, the movie “Jurassic Park” was released.  What a perfect time to be here!

Very similar landscape as the Badlands in South Dakota
Luckily we did not have much haze from the wildfires
Yep. That is a big old pile of dinosaur bones.
Of course I had to do a "silly selfie".

After our visit to the Dinosaur Provincial Park, we headed to our overnight spot at Tillebrook Provincial Park Campground, just outside of Brooks, AB.  Nice, quiet park.  Lucy loved chasing the multitude of gophers during our evening walk.  Tomorrow (6/16) we drive west through Calgary and on to Banff, AB.
