The Hoodoos of the Dinosaur Provincial Park

January 25th, 2010

The Dinosaur Provincial Park covers one of Alberta's most impressive areas and listed a World Heritage site for its amazing landscape. The Park is located in the valley of the Red Deer River and is, besides a stunning area to visit, also one of the world most important dinosaur fossil sites.

In the parks Visitors Centre there are several prehistorical reconstructions on display wih real life dinosaurs and there is a video theatre, a fossil lab and a gift shop to bring something back home from this historical place.

My kids loved the giant dinosaur tower which is a stunning reconstruction of the animals body. Passing longs, ribs and other body parts you could climb to the dinosaurs mouth and enjoy the panorama by looking through his teeth. Pretty cool, even if you're not 8 years old!

The scenery in the park is amazing and walking through this stone valley filled with hoodoos and miraculous rock formations it kind of brings you back to that prehistorical era.
