More About this Minecraft Model

The bedrock in this area was eroded by wind, water, and glaciers over millions of years, leaving it exposed for everyone to see. This is the badlands landscape of the Red Deer River Valley - with its high valley walls and hoodoos scattered throughout the area. The badlands are beautiful to look at and photograph and this beauty is enhanced by the layers of contrasting colours (creams, greys, black, and oranges) within the geologic formations. Paleontologists find a large number and variety of high-quality fossils in this park. While exploring, see how many bone beds you can find in this model!
