The Milk River in Southern Alberta, Canada winds through the glacier carved canyons and sandstone cliffs where many tourists enjoy hours or days of rafting without running into any treacherous white water rapids. A great way to spend a weekend while in Southern Alberta, is rafting on an overnight adventure for 72 kilometers which starts at the town of Milk River and ends up Writing on Stone Provincial Park. Disembark the raft along the shore of the Milk River at Writing on Stone Provincial Park and venture amongst the hoodoos and the aboriginal pictographs and petroglyphs.
The Hoodoos rise from dry basins or badlands and are made up of soft sedimentary rock with a top of harder material which protects the rest of the rock formation from the ever changing elements. The Hoodoos Interpretative Trail is a short but steep trek with interpretative signs along the way to explain how these mystery rock formations came to be.
