The Milky Way rises over the hoodoos in the badlands near Drumheller, AB in the wee hours of a spring morning. The hoodoos are rock formations, some up to six meters high, shaped by wind and water over millions and years. Cree and Blackfoot traditions hold that they are petrified giants who come alive at night to defend the land from intruders. Thankfully we had left before they woke.
