Exiting the main building of the Tyrrell Museum does not mean the fun is over. The museum also offers an interpretive path/trail. The land is so stark and dry it's tough to imagine what's left to see, but the 30-45 minute walk is well worth the trip.
(Though on a sunny day, come prepared -- there is no shade at all on the trail and the sun is unforgiving at the best of times).
One of the highlights of the path was the hoodoos -- rock and sand formations created over thousands of years. These weren't the big hoodoos -- they come later -- but that distinctive mushroom shape is so fascinating we had to stop and look:
The layers of time are unmistakable:
Two more mini hoodoos:
It's such a stark, dry land, yet somehow there are still colours everywhere:
But wait... there's more....
