Dry Island Buffalo Jump Historical Site
Canada

Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park is located in central Alberta, Canada.  It is part of an area known as the Badlands, likely because of the severe erosion and steepness of the Red Deer River banks.  This panorama is taken from the outlook point on the rim of the river bank.

This spot has historical significance to the native inhabitants.  Prairie bison were herded and driven over the cliffs at this spot, and the animals were harvested for their meat, fat, and hides.  

The access to this park can be found on Highway 21, north of Trochu Alberta. There is good hiking and there is road access down to the river in good conditions during the summer and fall months.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
