I have taken all pictures from approximately the same position so that the seasons can be compared. The name of the river in this area is river bend. There is a long lazy ess bend which makes for an interesting section of the river. The bends are approximately 2 kms in length. There are riffles and a few small rapids so it is a popular river to canoe. To go from Red Deer To Drumheller takes about four days and you will see very few other humans. You will see lots of birds, animals and a few cows who stare at you as you float by.
So the Red Deer River is a very enjoyable canoe trip if you have lots of time.
