We continued our Northern Convergence exploration of British Columbia and Alberta by heading over the Great Plains for several hours to reach Drumheller, the self-proclaimed (and fairly reasonably so) Dinosaur capitol of the world. On a field trip, our students would normally expect to spend time in the field, but sometimes there are museums that simply must be seen. The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology at Drumheller is one of those places. It's worth the long drive over the flat prairie.

|Except for maybe this kid...but he's about to be eaten anyway.|
