"I am speechless trying to describe this trip to family and friends. Fabulous and winning combination!!  Who better to show off this part of Canada than Jody with his favourite birding spots and experience growing up in Drumheller and connections at Tyrell and hands-on intimate familiarity with Horsethief Canyon." - 2015

"5/5 stars.  One of the best aspects was the spectacular scenery of the Alberta Badlands and the ability to actually access the canyons.  I enjoyed walking on the paths and seeing rocks, plants, birds and animals up close and breathing the wonderfully aromatic air.  Another bonus was that Jody was so familiar with the bird life and habitat plus geology, dinosaurs, etc." MH 2015
