Travel Through Time: Evolution, Fossils, and Dinosaurs!

If I had to pinpoint when I first became fascinated with dinosaurs (and prehistoric history in general), I’d have to say it would have been during the visit to the La Brea Tar Pits when I was a kid. So, when I read the article in my January Smithsonian Magazine (“When Dinosaurs were Doomed” by Eva Holland), I immediately made a promise to myself that I would visit the subject of the article–Drumheller, The Dinosaur Capital of the World! I can’t wait! Hopefully sooner rather than later you’ll get to see it as a future “Travel Tuesday” blog! The whole Smithsonian January issue is dedicated to Evolution and evotourism…subscribe and check it out…I’m hanging onto this copy, for sure!

Anyway, here’s a link to the Smithsonian magazine page, and some others if you are a dinosaur nerd like me  and want to visit Drumheller and the Canadian badlands (in my next life, I’m coming back as a brilliant scientist/mathematician, I swear!).
