This is our last major stop coming back from Glacier National Park, Montana.

Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park is located about 100 kilometres southeast of Lethbridge, Alberta. A protected place and National Historic Site, it contains the largest concentration of rock art on the Great Plains. Petroglyphs and pictographs were carved and painted on sandstone rock walls by the Blackfoot and Shoshone tribes. Towering cliffs and wind-blasted rock formations known as Hoodoos were thought to be the homes of powerful spirits, and thus there was an understanding among tribes that no battles could be waged here - this was a place for recording stories on stone and a spiritual sanctuary for all who passed through.
 
Tucked away in the southeast corner of the province in the valley of the Milk River, the land is scored with deep ravines known as coulees which provided shelter for human and animal alike.
