Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park Warnings and Dangers
Although we didn't see any, there are rattlesnakes in this area. But don't be alarmed! They rarely attack anything big, and will escape if given the chance, so just back away slowly and give them room to slither away. If they do strike, be consoled with the thought that their bites are seldom life-threatening. However, the guided tour that takes you into the protected area does not allow babies, children under 5, or pets, so think twice if you have any of these with you. Or, go late in the season like we did, when it's almost cold, there's less of a chance of running into them then.
Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park What to Pack
Hot in summer
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: It's generally warmer here than in the surrounding area, so be prepared for it to be hot in summer and warm in fall. We were there in late September, and though we had our mitts and tuques on in the parking area, we were soon taking off the layers once we got into the hoodoos. Bring water and food. Good shoes for walking/hiking. Sunscreen.Related to:
