Day 186 – The Drumheller, Alberta Spoon

Today, we celebrate the Canadian province of Alberta, known for its rugged mountains and many fossil discoveries.

The spoon I’ve chosen to represent Alberta is, of course, the Drumheller spoon. This little town about an hour northeast of Calgary was named after its founder, Captain Samuel Drumheller, who purchased land there in 1910. 

But what Drumheller is most famous for is the World’s Largest Dinosaur. It stands at 86 feet tall and weighs over 145,000 pounds. For $4.00, you can climb the 106 stairs up into her (yes, she’s a she, apparently) gaping jaws and get an amazing view of the Badlands.

She looks so tiny on the spoon. I think it might be time for a road trip to visit in person!
