Nice to see that the parks are attempting to restore pieces of history that are so rare. I highly recommend this area for all ages. Not hard to get to.

The “dirt” road to the dinosaur bones was actually sand. Some places were thick and then there a was a big drop off a rock. We would have bottomed out and never would have made it back up! No way we could make it to...More
