Photographer's Note

The Badlands of Alberta. Seen here is Horsethief Canyon.

"Horsethief Canyon is where bright yellow canola fields and giant rocking pump jacks meet the precipice of pure Badlands splendour. Stand at the canyon edge and take in the entire valley or strap on some hikers and venture deep into the canyon itself - just be careful, there are no interpretive signs and it's easy to get lost.

In case you were wondering... Horsethief Canyon is so-named because it was used by American horse thieves in the old west, to hide stolen horses en route to buyer markets in Alberta. Horsethief Canyon is 16 km from Drumheller, just past the Royal Tyrrell Museum on North Dinosaur Trail (Highway 838)."
