The Dinosaur Tracks

I must admit that I was pretty struck when I saw my first dinosaur tracks imprint when we had lunch at Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona/Utah boundary. It’s very interesting to know that many millions of years ago, the area was occupied by dinosaurs.

“The imprints were made by a one ton, twenty foot long, meat-eating dinosaur. The slab of sandstone came from a nearby side canyon. When Dilophosaurus tracked through the silt 170 million years ago, this was a different landscape. Shallow streams meandered across a marshy plain. Throughout Geln Canyon, the red-orange layer of Kayenta sandstone appears—a lost world turned to stone, then river-cut and weathered into view. “
