Summer vacations for our family when our children were small often meant exploring around our province and city. These days the term used is “staycation”, a vacation close to home that does not cost a lot of money.
One summer we travelled through Alberta and went to the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller and further afield to the Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump located 18 km northwest of Fort Macleod. One tends to forget how beautiful and varied the landscape can be when you get used to seeing it every day. Alberta is known for its beautiful Rocky Mountains and parks, but there are many other things to see and do in the short summer months.
Today I bring you a video from The Vagabrothers that shows a little of the beauty outside the mountain range, in the foothills of Alberta. Through Writing on Stone to Head Smashed In a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll see lessons with the atlatl a long spear, and you’ll visit Buffalo Rock Tipi Camp.
I have seen many places around Panama and the world and there is still many to explore but, come along and see a little of summer in Canada from…the campo.
So, right now what I’m sharing with you is the richness and vastness of my culture. Our history is written all over these rocks and it’s all connected to land. We were not landowners; we’re people to care take after the land.
