: : : Hey Bea!
: : : Now that you mention it, some of the music did sound a little like tracks from LOTM. As well, I've read a couple of articles about Head-Smashed-In- Buffalo-Jump in Alberta. Most people have the romantic vision of fleet-footed ponies and their brave warriors streaking across the grasslands chasing the buffalo herds, striking them down with arrow and lance. That's true, of course, but so was the practice of chasing the buffalo herd at full speed off a cliff. Not nearly as romantic, but very practical.
: Hi again,Jeri!
: Since you and some people on this board are interested in buffalos, here is a direct link for more info..
: Enjoy !
Thanks Bea! It's a great site. I vacationed in Alberta years ago when my daughter was knee high and I've always wanted to go back. Well, maybe next year and if I do, this is one Heritage Site I'd definitely want to visit.
