Dinosaur National Monument

Can you see the skull?

 Bones on bones on bones...

 You trying to get us arrested, Drey? 


We went on an adventure to a dinosaur quarry close to my home.
Sometimes I want to think of dinosaurs as mythical creatures who never really existed, only because
they lived SO long ago & were SO huge & SO cool that I'm mad we can't see them living!
But their bones preserved in a river bed, discovered years ago, makes it easy to believe they were very real.
 
So they excavated this mound of dirt & found hundreds of bones in it. 
(and not just this mound, it's ALL over this area)
They decided they got what they needed from it, built a visitor center around it & have decided to
preserve the area/stop excavation for future scientists. It's pretty awesome.
And Drey was in heaven.

There are so many dinosaur quarry's, museums & excavation sites around Utah.
But I think this one is by far the coolest.

  6. This is awesome. We camped at Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose TX this past weekend. There are dino prints throughout the riverbed. But this place looks so much cooler than where we went. Drey is such a cutie!
