Natural landscapes: the prairie vista

PRAIRIE VIEW FROM HEAD SMASHED IN BUFFALO JUMP, ALBERTA

There are incredible vistas from this historic western Canada UNESCO world heritage site. Hundreds of years ago, at least one herd of buffalo was driven over the cliffs here by indigenous hunters, then harvested at the bottom over a period of months. The multi-level interpretive centre illustrates a hunt and First Nations life before the arrival of Europeans and the Canadian Pacific Railway, which changed the prairies forever. It’s a fascinating place to visit.
