We travel back in time..Dinosaur National Monument

From ancient earthquakes and world changing eruptions, we travel back in time to the land of the dinosaurs. Dinosaur National Monument exists to protect a rich cache of fossils and Dinosaur bones. The Carnegie Quarry was discovered in the early 1900’s. With great foresight, the decision was made to leave this “dinosaur jam” in situ, allowing for future generations to see and experience it as it was found. The wall is partially excavated so many bones are visible. The area is so rich, and so many new discoveries were made in the area, its discoverers felt free to leave this site intact. Many of the bones found in the region are on display at other museums around the country.

It gives one a chill to see and touch the actual bones of 140 million year old dinosaurs.
