Photographer's Note

Hey Everyone! Another photo from the Calgary Stampede Parade. This is the float from the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller Alberta. "The Royal Tyrrell Museum celebrates the long history and spectacular diversity of life - from the tiniest grains of pollen to the mightiest dinosaurs.

Set in the Alberta badlands, the Museum opened in September, 1985. Four hundred thousand visitors were hoped for that first year. Nearly 600,000 came, and hundreds of thousands continue to visit each year.

They come to experience the power and excitement of some of the most remarkable fossil displays anywhere in the world, in Canada’s only institution devoted entirely to palaeontology."

We are heading out there this weekend so if you like dinosaurs stay tuned.
