Halloween Road Trip!

The Plan:
Annual-do-a-fun-little-short-hike around the Drumheller area this time for Halloween. Basically a touristy weekend but in costume. So come prepared. Be as elaborate or as simple as you'd like. We'll have dinner in a local eating hole and then overnight in a hostel aka motel and go home the next day. Expect to be back in town late sunday. Attractions could include the ghost towns of Wayne and Dorothy, abandoned mines, a Jurassic museum, traipsing around a Thief's canyon and a suspension bridge. All depends on how much time we have. The final pricing may change depending on how many people actually goes or if we have to add/minus rooms.

- The provincial park area can be very slippery when wet thanks to the clay there. Have good traction footwear.
- The coulees are notorious for being steep. Have good traction footwear.
- We will all be sharing a room. 3-4 in a room. Bring ear plugs/ eye shades if you are a light sleeper.
- Fun anything goes event. Itinerary may be subject to change following which way the wind blows, be prepared!
- Drivers will have priority to sign up first.
