Two weeks at SHAD has flown by so quickly. Every single day proves to be a surprising new adventure for us, U of C SHADs, as we bond and push ourselves out of our comfort zones. Today, we took an hour and a half bus ride all the way to the dinosaur city of the world, Drumheller. When we got to the Royal Tyrell Museum, we were greeted by countless prehistoric fossils. Wandering through history, while spending time with new friends was a blast. After touring the museum displays, we then ventured out into the surrounding badlands. In a couple groups we explored the rocky hills of Drumheller and took some amazing pictures.
After, we headed down to see some Hoodoos nearby. You may be wondering what hoodoos are. Well, they are tall rock formations that are mainly found in hot, dry areas. Even from the bottom of the hoodoos the view was spectacular, and coming from a concrete jungle like Toronto, it was definitely a new experience for me personally. Many SHADs even scaled to the top of the hoodoos with the support and encouragement of their peers. This new experience allowed all of us to bond and develop new connections with people we may not have talked to yet.
