Dinosaur Track


Dinosaur tracks are more common than you might think. Probably the capital of the world for dinosaur tracks in St. George, Utah and its small suburb Washington, Utah. This track was found out in the wild, so to speak. It is at the end of a very short hike down a steep sandy bank to the bottom of a dry wash. There are several such tracks going in different directions. It is amazing how something so transient could have been preserved so long.

  2. I'm interested in the track size. My guess. About 50 centimeters?

  3. The track is about ten inches from top to bottom, or 25 centimeters. The wash probably has a name, I don't know it but it is right in Washington, Utah.
