Dinosaur Quarry

 One of my dreams when I used to wander the Colorado Plateau was to find a dinosaur skeleton. This was entirely possible since many fossils have been unearthed just few hundreds of yards from my summer home. One notable fossil was taken from a gravel quarry just a about a half mile south of my house. They took out a complete mammoth skeleton. I used to walk by there all the time, not knowing that the fossil find was buried just a few steps away. Mammoths are OK, but I was really wanting to find a dinosaur. I thought I found one and hauled the rocks to show the State Geologist, but he couldn't tell what they were either. Some dreams fade away with old age.
