Summer 2014 Epic Road Trip Part 2 – Dinosaurs!

Second part of my road trip back in July. Met up with a friend in Calgary. Spent some time there and Drumheller. So far so good! It just feels great traveling.

This is the Peace Bridge. It’s a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Bow River. Pretty awesome.

I’m really liking all the art around town. Makes the city look a lot more modern. The next picture is an interesting sculpture in front of the Bow. I’ve seen other work from this artist (Jaume Plensa) in Seattle. So it was kinda cool finding this.  The skyscraper behind it is also really awesome.

Next stop, Drumheller! This is my first time there, and I keep hearing about the famous Royal Tyrrell Museum. It was really cool!

Awesome T-Rex just hanging out

This was at the Fossil Museum. The T-Rex actually moves. It was kind of terrifying. And it was only a young one… Ugh.

Checked out the Badlands Passion Play. We weren’t allowed taking pictures during the performance, but it was really well done! And the venue was awesome! Right before the show started, we were warned about a thunder storm. So we packed up, waited it out (maybe 15- 30 minutes), and back to our seats. The weather was pretty awesome after the quick storm.
