Guest Video: Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia


There will come a point in this drone video, made in the UNESCO Tumbler Ridge Geopark, when you will wonder where the dinosaurs came from. Here you go.

Seriously, look at those flat rock formations: that’s all undisturbed sedimentary rocks that have accumulated over a vast amount of geologic time. Of course there are fossils in there! (Bonus points if you can spot the cirques; here’s more geological background.)



Here’s a bit more about the dinosaurs. To show how far out in the wilderness this geopark is, note the hope expressed that they won’t need much helicopter support:



Unfortunately the museum at Tumbler Ridge is closed at the moment because of some sort of funding issue, so here is a video someone posted of it. I’ve read somewhere that this place has the only known tyrannosaurid walkways!
