Part 17 Winter Trip - Dinosaurs Walked Here

What is a trip without dinosaurs?  True to form I found the Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country.  It advertised lots of dinosaur tracks so off we all went to investigate.

This museum sits on the site where hundreds of dinosaur tracks were discovered in the 1980's.  Excavation was going on to build a commercial building when the tracks were discovered. All building stopped so the tracks could be studied and preserved. These tracks were made more than 100 million years ago.  Incredible to be looking at something so old.

This dinosaur walked upright.

This dinosaur walked on all four legs as evidenced by the double line of tracks.

Looking down at the tracks...
