Traveling Across Alberta

I was recently in the Rocky Mountains in Banff, Alberta! It’s gorgeous there. It was part holiday, part book research, part photography.

We also went to the Badlands in Alberta to see the stunning rock formations…and the dinosaur museum.

Dinosaur Museum

This is a photo of the dinosaur lab at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta, the place where scientists assemble the bones before placing them in the museum. It’s cool that they allowed a viewing window as we strolled the rest of the museum. This June they just discovered a new species of dinosaur! They named it Hellboy (Regaliceratops peterhewsi) – it’s part of the Triceratops family, with some differences in the horns and the frilly-looking collar and crown.

Saw a lot of blue skies and wonderful spaces on the prairies.

The open space is the flat land where the original Fort Calgary was built. Home of my Mountie stories! Background is Calgary.

Here’s a view of the Bow River surging through the mountains.

A photo from a river canyon in Alberta. The water was so beautiful and clear. Well, I’m back from my trip and now it’s back to writing. Working on the opening page and chapter. I find this the toughest part. If I don’t get it right, I can’t seem to go on until it’s exactly the way I like it. But when I’m finally happy with it, it’s one of the joys of writing.
