Tonight I watched the third episode of the television show, The Amazing Race Canada. I wanted to watch it as I figured it was a great way to see some of Canada’s amazing scenery and sites. And the show has definitely delivered on that.
The show started in one of my favourite Canadian destinations – Niagara Falls, of course. The racers quickly headed to western Canada and ended up this last episode in this place:
I’ve been to the mountains of Alberta, but never to the Badlands. I’m dying to go though. Just the name “Badlands” sounds enticing. These hoodoos and the nearby famous dinosaurs finds and museum would be incredible to see in person.
The show does an incredible job in highlighting such must-see attractions – like televised postcards of the country. The network airing the show has a cool interactive map that traces the racers route across Canada and their associated cultural and physical challenges.
I’m looking forward to next week’s episode in Canada’s territories. Interestingly, I have ample postcards from all ten of Canada’s provinces but zero from our three territories. So who know’s what sites there the show will highlight (I’m guessing gold panning in the Klondike, however).
