Canadian Badlands Canadian Badlands

In prehistoric times, much of North America was a lush subtropical habitat embracing a vast inland sea. This is where the dinosaurs roamed 70 million years ago. Fast forward to present-day central and southern Alberta where their bones now rest in ancient riverbeds, framed by the maroon-striped canyons of the mysterious Canadian Badlands. Find yourself a little bit out there. Wander through the cottonwoods along the banks of meandering rivers. Ride horseback through prairies and grasslands just like the early cowboys and ranchers. Discover the history of the pioneers who flocked west to build the railway and seek their fortunes in coal and clay.
