Inside a dinosaur's mouth in Drumheller, Alberta we met a lady from Toronto. She was traveling with a child and asked us if we could take a photo of her and her niece, standing in front of the huge Tyrannosaurus Rex teeth. Olivia and I obliged. It turns out that her niece had family in the same town where my grandmother now lives.

The day had started off in Revelstoke National Park. I took a walk in the morning, taking in the amazing views around our hotel. And I photographed one of the famous landmarks of Revelstoke. The largest carved wooden head. Seems like every place in Alberta needs the largest something or other as a claim to fame. Drumheller has the largest Tyrannosaurus statue. Revelstoke has the largest wooden head. Edmonton, the largest indoor mall (when it was built in the 80's it was the largest. Now it ranks 4th).

We entered Alberta around lunch time and stopped in Banff to look around, and find a place to eat. Andre and I chose Mc Donalds on the main street. I had the crispy chicken Caesar salad. We walked over the main street bridge, which crosses a green colored river, and took some photos of the awesome scenery. Again the weather was perfect. The white clouds above looked like chunks of cotton swabs, placed artistically by God on a blue sky collage.

We waved farewell to the rocky mountains as we neared Calgary. Olivia drove us around the city, just to get a sense of the area. She stopped for a Taco, at Taco Bell, and drove along the park, beside the river, where bikers, skate boarders, and runners, exercised on this majestic day.

We entered Drumheller, late evening. The long shadows cast across the yellow fields of canola just before it added extra contrast to the gray, brown, badland canyon, we descended into. There was just enough light for Olivia and I to scan the horizon and get a great view of the town of Drumheller as we stood inside the mouth of the world's largest Tyrannosaurus Rex. What a site.
