Hey everyone. I do apologize about the lack of paleoart recently (though granted part of that is my perpetual struggle with drawing ceratopsian front feet in perspective!) BUT in relation to that, I’m planning a trip for next summer out to Alberta, Canada. Specifically, a guided dig in the Dinosaur Park Formation, and I’m hopeful for a few days of hiking/camping out there and of course the Royal Tyrrell Museum. My heart’s pretty set on that particular place; the presence of Styracosaurus and Gorgosaurus in that formation makes me keenly interested (read: giddy as a four year old seeing the Elephant in the Smithsonian for the first time.) Meandering into the Hell Creek formation in Montana is definitely an additional consideration, and I’ve considered the Field Museum of Chicago to be another stop, though its far away. And, naturally, there will be a lot of drawing!
I live allllll the way in southern Virginia, however, so travel is going to be a major downer in all of this. One of my plans was just to stick with being in Alberta and Dinosaur Park, so planning air travel would be smoother; Another plan was to do a shortened version of the Dinosaur Park trip with the excursion into Montana. Do any of you guys have any advice for me in staying in Alberta? Does anybody have any experience in Dinosaur Park, and how is it? Let me know your thoughts!
