Thanks very much!
Well you educated me with this post. We go to Dry Island Buffalo Jump which is quite close to this location, but I had never heard of the Tolman Badlands, we usually just go to Drum for that type of terrain. You’ve given us a new place to check out.
It wasn’t called that when we were there – just the Badlands. Have you been to Heads Smashed in Buffalo Jump? A beautiful spot and incredible museum – something your kids would enjoy. Fort MacLeod is near by and also the Coldale Birds of Prey Centre. Something to explore if you have a few days free.
We did Head Smashed In a few years ago. A great site, and we have been through Fort macleod a few times enroute to Waterton.
Hello,nice to Meet you ,EM
Hello to you also. Your work is excellent and I’m looking forward to seeing more of it now that I’m following you.
