Tyrell Museum and Badlands walk


With a nasty weather forecast for the mountains, we decided to head the opposite way and see how the badlands looked.
We'd been thinking for a while that it'd be cool to check out the Tyrell museum again, where none of us had been in years.
The weather held out long enough for us to go check out the nearby interpretive trail, and go wandering off through the valley a bit.
