Head-Smashed-In-Buffalo Jump

I forgot to talk about our little excursion to Head-Smashed-In-Buffalo Jump last week.  It is about 1 hour 45 minutes from Calgary, west of Fort Macleod.  We have seen the sign every time we drive back and forth from Lethbridge, so when we had a little time we stopped in a week ago Friday.  It is a World Heritage Site, and it's where the natives would run the buffalo off the cliff to their death, and then they could go skin them, use the meat and the hides.  It was a fun visit-we got there so late that we didn't have enough time to see all that we wanted--but they didn't charge us, since we got there after 4:00.  We are planning to go back when we have more time.
