In other parts of Alberta, erosion has unearthed dinosaur fossils, and in yet others can be found fossils of marine creatures from the epoch when the interior of North America was a vast inland sea.
Although the sky in this photo is dull, the scene is brightened by huge fields of canola (also known as rapeseed) from which cooking oil is made. When I edit this photo to make the sky and the coulee brighter, the color of the canola is almost painful to the eye, which I find it to be when driving by.
There are nearly as many canola fields in Alberta as there are fossils in the ground.
