Critter bones in Dinosaur Park

Don't think Alberta's Dinosaur Provincial Park doesn't have dinosaurs, because it really does. It has been an active paleontological site for a long time. Many of the huge critters were killed as climate change swept the Canadian prairie, making it one of the world's richest deposits of dinosaur bones.

We visited there once, with our dog Lindy, who is only slightly more active than I am in the hiking department. That meant my husband couldn't see as much as he wanted to see, so he stopped there by himself this week to hike 4 of the 5 trails and bring home, not bones, but photos.
