Dinosaur hunting in Tumbler Ridge, B.C.

It’s dusk, which in northern B.C. during the summertime means close to 10 p.m. We’re hiking along a narrow path in the darkened woods, finding our way with headlamps. As we approach the Wolverine River, our guide stops to examine a tree stump where an animal—a rather large animal—has been rooting around in the dirt. “There’s definitely been a bear here in the last 24 hours,” says Anthony Moreau-Coulson, a paramedic who volunteers at the Tumbler Ridge Dinosaur Discovery Gallery. He says this matter-of-factly, without a trace of fear. So why exactly are we trudging around in the woods late at night? We’re dinosaur hunting. Well, track hunting, to be more precise, on a dinosaur footprint tour run by the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery.
