Earlier this week while we were hanging out in St. George, Utah, Satori woke up and wanted to see dinosaur tracks and fossils. We had mentioned in passing that we might see some on our trip, although I had no clue yet where. Luckily, this town had a great site!

Featured in a recent National Geographic, this place allows you to walk along an early Jurassic lake (165-198 million years ago), viewing dinosaur tracks, swim tracks and more that are some of the best preserved in the world.
