Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park is about an hours drive south-east from Red Deer along the badlands of the Red Deer River. This is one of my favourite parks near enough to Red Deer to allow a day trip. It provides a wonderful variety of scenery and has some trails, but allows for freelance hiking through the badlands and along the riverbank. This image was made a few years ago and is a spot I love to revisit almost every time I’m in the park. The small group of beautiful trembling aspens are surrounded by balsam poplars and other smaller shrubs like they are held in high respect by those around them and given a space to grow in their glory. It’s a magical spot! It does take a bit of bushwhacking to get to and can be a bit difficult to find, but definitely worth the effort.
