We had spent a long, arduous day hiking in the Killdeer Badlands, in the East Block of Grasslands National Park in Southwestern Saskatchewan. I, along with three of my colleagues - Dave Reede, Peter Blahut and Brad Smith - had enjoyed a pleasant day making images of this seldom visited park which is quite off the beaten path. It was a very hot, sunny day with temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius. Nearing sunset (and as the clouds rolled in), we dragged ourselves up the coulee after a grueling 15 to 20 kilometer hike.
