2012-07-06 (Bus Tour) Dry Island Buffalo Jump
Join Rob and Tjarda Barratt for an exploration of the ancient badlands of the Red Deer River, just in time to catch the magical blooming of the cacti
Over countless millennia, wind and water have worked to sculpt the amazing landscape of Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park. Just in time for the magical blooming of the cacti, we’ll explore these ancient badlands of the Red Deer River.
Climb to the top of the park’s namesake – the “dry island,” rising 200 metres above the water, look out to the cliff-top of an ancient buffalo jump, and keep an eye out for the bones of the Albertosaurus.
Tjarda and Rob Barratt are passionate, knowledgeable long-time residents of the area.
This bus tour will be a day-long trip, leaving Calgary in the early morning and returning around dinner time. Hiking components are optional and physical fitness requirements are minimal. A picnic lunch will be provided.
