Drumheller

This past weekend was our 23rd Anniversary and we decided we would like to spend it in Drumheller.
The main attraction for us was NOT dinosaurs but the Great Canadian Badlands Passion Play. An amazing live outdoor depiction of the life and crucifixion of Christ. It was fantastic (albeit warm!) experience. The actors use the landscape to it's fullest, with them appearing and disappearing behind these amazing hills. The natural acoustics were fantastic. Our seat was quite near the crosses so we had a great visual of the crucifixion, which reduced me tears. 
If you ever chance to take in this production, DO IT! 



Hubby had never been to the hoodoos so after dinner we took a drive out there. It was a very quick visit, the mosquitoes literally had us running for the truck!
I did manage to capture a few shots before I had to go and scratch my at least one dozen bites!


I was last here 13 years ago and much has changed, new viewing platforms have been built with fences to keep people off the structures. Sadly they are greatly reduced in size, once those caps wear away, their lifespan is very short as they are mainly comprised of sandstone underneath. 


I am not the best photographer but sure loved how the next one came out!


We were so busy while we were there I did not complete a single hexie, but here is the last bit of progress
Weeks 38, 39, 40
12 to go!
I really want to knit so big motivation to keep working on them!
In 10 days or so we head north to visit Yellowknife NWT (we will cover AB almost south to north this summer!), so I will get the last ones cut out and glued and hopefully will have all 52 done by the time I get home!


Have a great week!
