We stopped in at the museum in Avonlea, a village in the midst of fertile grain fields. Access to the badlands is by guide only. I felt it was a tad brazen but I wondered if perhaps someone could take us within the hour. Lucky us. Marilyn, a lovely senior and previous church minister was our guide. While we enjoyed a deliciously cold ice cream later, she admitted we were her first solo guide trip. She did an amazing job.
