On the Bleriot Ferry.

Partial quote from Wikipedia:

"The Bleriot Ferry is a ferry in Alberta, Canada. It links the two sections of the North Dinosaur Trail (Highway 838) as it crosses the Red Deer River from Kneehill County on the west, to Starland County on the east. It was built by Andre Bleriot] commissioned in 1913 and, in addition to providing an essential transport service, acted as a major social hub in the Drumheller area.

The ferry operates from late April to November."

Some of the most significant fossil discoveries ever made from the Age of Reptiles have been discovered in this area of badlands, part of which would become the Dinosaur Provincial Park. Fossils of some 35 species of dinosaurs have been found here and are displayed in the nearby Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller.
