    The Badlands Guardian: Geological Feature that Stunned the World

    The Badlands Guardian: Geological Feature that Stunned the World

    Canada is a large country with a great many amazing natural sights. One of the most dramatic has only been revealed in recent years, the Badlands Guardian. This is a geological wonder that appears to represent an indigenous man’s head in profile. The discovery of the dramatic and unusual geographical feature has fascinated many in Canada and beyond.
    Where to Find the Badlands Guardian

    The Badlands’ Guardian is near Medicine Hat in the south-east of Alberta and not far from the border with the USA. The location of the geological wonder is very remote, in an area that has been traditionally the home of the Siska First Nation People, often known as the Blackfoot tribes. The Badlands are desolate terrain of gullies, chasms, sinkholes, and hills. They were formed during the end of the last Ice Age when glacial meltwater created valleys and steeps slopes out of the sedimentary rock and clay soil. The effect of wind and water on these landscapes means that they are constantly changing. Winds and heavy rains carve channels in the rocks relatively quickly. The constant erosion of the light sedimentary soil and clay means that there are many unique and strange geomorphic features and topographies which have intrigued people since the arrival of the First Nations . Badlands are found in several areas of North America.

    No mystical stuff going on here, but it is pretty cool.
    I have a minor in geology and will use this as a small item for my capstone class

    The article states that the area is constantly being affected by erosion, being softer ground around the head.
