The moon was spectacular as it came up over the badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park.
The day prior to our arrival, much of the west was hit by a blizzard and abnormally cold temperatures. We received a call from the park saying, “You’re not still coming, are you?”
“Yeah, we’re a few hours away,” was our reply.
After a period of silence, the voice on the phone reminded us, “You realize it’s going to be minus seven degrees tonight.”
“I think we’ll be fine, except for the infants that we’re travelling with.”
A few minutes later, we received another call from the park with a very generous offer that let everyone stay warm at night, and pretty much gave us the park to ourselves.
