Canada in 3-D, Part 2

This is Part 2 of a collection of 3-D pictures taken by the FunLists Go Team of Eddie and Jim as they travelled half way across Canada and back. To see each image in 3-D, just sit back, relax, look straight at the picture, cross your eyes until the two images merge, and behold Canada in 3-D…

The Hoodoos of Alberta

On our way to Drumheller, Alberta, there’s a roadside pit stop where you can see the Hoodoos. These are stone columns with caprocks that are the result of millennia of natural erosion, exposing rock that dates back 75 million years. Basically, they’re cool-looking gnarly rocks.

In the area that hosts the Hoodoos of Alberta, there are a few human-constructed rock formations, too. We see it as a way for people to communicate with the Hoodoos. Communing with nature.

Dinosaurs of Drumheller, AB

Driving into Drumheller (The Dinosaur Capital of the World), Alberta, the road winds amiably through the small town decorated with a small dinosaur on every other corner. Approaching a bend in the road, we saw a rather tall dinosaur at the head of a park. As we drove the bend, we glanced over at that dinosaur and nearly drove off the road when we saw what was behind it in the distance: this gigantic T-Rex is billed as The World’s Largest Dinosaur, measuring 86 feet (26.3 metres) high and 151 feet (46 metres) long. Impressive!

At the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta, Eddie is inspecting a prehistoric fish head, contemplating how much soup it would produce. Jim is imagining the pain of being bitten into fish bait by this monster!

Here are a couple of raptors that greet you near the front lobby.

Ever since I was a kid, my favorite dinosaur has been the Triceratops. I was very happy to meet this guy at Museum.

Dinosaur bones picking at dinosaur bones! It was a ‘saur-eat-‘saur world back then.

Some dinosaurs mugging for the camera as Eddie looks on during our visit to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta.  Have you ever been photobombed by a raptor?

Swiss Mountain Guide at Lake Louise, Alberta

Eddie stops to see what this little guy is looking at. This bronze of a Swiss mountain guide is 117 years old (and counting), and can be found at Lake Louise, Alberta.

Dusk in the Canadian Rockies

This picture was taken on Highway 1 between Lake Louise, Alberta and Golden, British Columbia. It’s an example of how quickly night falls in the Rockies. While it’s still daytime up among the peaks, the forests between the mountains fall into a deep darkness suddenly in the late afternoon. The temperature drops dramatically, too.
