D is for Dinosaur: ABC Wednesday Round #3

This post is all about , "Once upon a time..." when dinosaurs roamed the lands of Alberta, Canada. I am also delving into the past by using some of my old 35mm photos taken sometimes in the 1990's. This first photo above is of a replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex standing in front of the tourist bureau in Milk River, Alberta. In the background of this picture are perhaps what some might consider more modern day dinosaurs, those of grain elevators, many of which have now disappeared from the landscape of this prairie province.

These last two photos of dinosaurs were taken at the Prehistoric Park at the Calgary Zoo. This park features life size re-creations allowing visitors to walk through the land of southern Alberta as it may have been millions of years ago.
My appreciation and thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt's Place for hosting ABC Wednesday Round 3. To view more ABC Wednesday posts via Mr. Linky please click HERE. For viewing the new format of ABC Wednesday Round 3 where all posts can be seen in the same place, please click HERE.
