Ancient Mud Deposits

Ancient Mud Deposits

Dinosaur Provincial Park

Great rivers that flowed here 75 million years ago left sand and mud deposits that make up the valley
walls, hills and hoodoos of modern-day Dinosaur Provincial Park. At the end of the last ice age (about
13,000 years ago) water from the melting ice carved the valley through which the Red Deer River now
flows. Today, water from prairie creeks and run-off continues to sculpt the layers of these badlands,
the largest in Canada. The result is an eerie landscape that looks like another world!

Me, too. I'd want to examine these up close.
The texture is wonderful. The shapes inspire my
imagination.

Fred....this, is So fascinating! Remarkable really, I'd be stopped in my tracks to feel and inspect this.
Wonderful abstract shot, full of textures and patterens.
