Land of Dinosaurs

The Mighty Peace

W.A.C. Bennett Dam

Dinosaur Lake

Peace River Dam

I drove out to Hudson's Hope to visit and have a picnic with Hubby, who is working close by. It was a very hot day, just perfect for a picnic and the gorgeous scenery that surrounds the town. This is what Tourist Info says about this pretty, little town:

Ranching, cereal grain and forage crops are the economic mainstays of this town over looking the Peace River. Residents are fond of telling visitors they live in the land of dinosaurs and dams. Dudley Dinosaur is the town mascot. Be sure to stop in at the museum to discover fossils from the area. Displayed is an 11,600 year old mammoth tusk.
Boaters, paddlers and fishers will find too little time to enjoy all the wilderness spots.

Be sure to tour the WAC Bennett Dam and The Peace Canyon Dam just a few minutes up the road.
