Celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday – 5:00 pm

Celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday – 5:00 pm


We are almost coming to the end of our celebration of Canada's 150th birthday but it's not over yet! Canada with all it's beauty and kindness can also have a little mystery. Let's start with Drumheller and the Hoodoos!


Perhaps the most mysterious natural phenomena in all of Canada lies in Alberta, our second most western province. Drumheller, part of the Badlands, is a small community and home to our famous Dinosaur Museum, the Royal Tyrrell Museum. Situated about two hours northwest of Dinosaur National Park, the Badlands hold secrets to the prehistoric world. With the Earth having fallen away during earthquakes and other natural occurrences, layers upon layers of geological history are now exposed. Much to the delight of palaeontologists, these layers provide an indisputable timeline of prehistoric fossils: The dinosaurs are found only below the black layer of rock. The rock formations, the Hoodoos, range in height from roughly one to three meters.



Another mystery that's well not totally a mystery but looks quite mysterious, are the northern lights! Scientifically known as the Aurora Borealis, a natural light display, northern Canada is one of the best places to see nature's show! Reds, greens, purples, pinks and yellow streak the sky caused by charged particles from the sun interacting with the molecules and atoms in Earth's atmosphere during our winter months. It's beautiful and worth seeing!


All this talk of mystery, it seems only fitting to end this post with a mystery box giveaway! As with all our giveaways today, leave a comment below by July 7th and we will randomly select one lucky winner this hour to win! After leaving your comment here we hope you'll take a moment to visit us on Facebook and Instagram (@sctmagazine) and leave a comment there as well for THREE chances to win! We'll be compiling all the comments each hour.

Next is our BIG finale!


Fun Fact: People in Churchill, Manitoba leave their car doors unlocked in case their neighbours need to make a quick escape from polar bears.

    Thank you Scrapbook and Cards Today. This has been such a fun way to spend Canada Day while I am trapped inside with this insufferable headache. I would have loved to go to Bath for the Parade, as shown in Amanda Farlinger’s layout but I wouldn’t have been able to tolerate the heat or the noise. Instead, I stayed near my computer and toured the country with you. It’s been great. Happy Birthday to us all.

  16. Debbie July 1, 2017 at 5:24 pm

    Rock formations and Northern lights must be added to my Canadian bucket list!

  17. Kara July 1, 2017 at 5:29 pm

  18. Barb macaskill July 1, 2017 at 5:30 pm

    So cool! I mentioned in my 4:00 comment that the Ammolites reminded me of the Northern Lights and here they are in all their glory!
    The dinosaur museum sounds like a place my two grandsons would love to visit! Truth be told, I would love to go too! The Hoodoos and Drumheller also sound like Great places to add to the itinerary! We are planning a family getaway for this summer and I am definitely suggesting that we add these to our list of places to choose from! Especially the Northern Lights!
    Thank you for opening my eyes ? to these cool facts about our Canadian neighbors!

    Loved visiting Drumheller and seeing the Badlands! An amazing place. Thanks SCT for all the fun facts today.

  138. Heather H. July 3, 2017 at 10:53 am

    The Northern Lights are so beautiful!! I love the fun fact about the polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba.

    The hoodoo’s in Drumheller are a special place to visit. And often overshadowed by the more famous Alberta attractions. We are talking about you- Rocky Mountains with Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise.
    One of the best camping memories ever, involved coming out of the tent at 3 am to answer the call of nature and seeing the most amazing light show ever. The Northern Lights were spectacular, and I woke up everyone else to come outside and share it with me.
    Can’t wait to see what mysteries you are hiding in your prize box.

    I have visited the Royal Tyrrell museum and it is a fascinating place to see. While I have been fortunate to enjoy the big skies of Alberta when visiting relatives, I have never seen the northern lights there. I have however seen them while at the cottage in Northern Ontario. They are truly amazing.

  153. Nita K. July 5, 2017 at 4:41 pm
