|THE BADLANDS ALONG THE SOUTH SASKATCHEWAN RIVER|
This photo was taken during one of our canoe trips. I went for a hike one evening while the sun was lower in the sky and not so hot out. The colours of the hills really came to life. The sun was at my back as I took this shot. So far, all my shots are hand held, but I 'm really thinking about getting a tripod.
Each different coloured layer of the badlands is a different period in time. People have found dinosaur bone, and camel bones. Each of these comes from a totally different period in time.
This area is almost desert like with an abundance of cacti, sage brush, rattlesnakes, blackwidow spiders and so much more. The temperature is usually very hot 90F-100F (30C-40C) the great thing about canoeing is you can always jump in the river to cool off.
The canoe trips are anywhere from 50-60 miles or (80-100 km) long or 4 to 5 days long.
