Drumheller is a wonderful little town full of dinosaurs. This little city in the middle of nowhere is one of Nane's favourite places to be and this made the trip extremely fascinating. We stopped on the way in at Horseshoe Glacier but because of the rare ice fog it was kind of hard to see how spectacular I bet it really is. Our first major stop was at the Tyrell museum which was beyond anything I had imagined it to be. The building was filled with fossils, dinosaur sculptures, more information then I knew what to do with, and even a real fossil recovery room. New major fossils are constantly being found and research is always being done to try and fit the ancient puzzle together. The prehistoric marine life exhibits would have caught my dads eye forsure! (Imagine hooking a 20 meter long fish dad!!) I recommend visiting this museum to anyone passing through the Drumheller area. Personally it sparks something that gets me thinking of the world, how old the universe is and how the oldest human being alive is still a baby compared to the earth. I really enjoyed experiencing this with Nane because she's always able to
have an interesting conversation about anything, especially when it's something she is so passionate about and knows so much about! On the way home we stopped to look at the hoodoos! A neat formation of rocks that was naturally carved many many many years ago!

I hope this year I will discover, explore and experience more than I can imagine. Hopefully I will find some sort of passion or drive in either Edmonton, Calgary, Seattle, Portland, California, Australia, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Germany, France, Spain, England, New York, or Philadelphia.
