Dinosaur Adventures

038 Here’s Sai, Jay and Sophie enjoying our adventure!

Saturday we had a dinosaur-themed adventure. Joe has a friend from work, Jesse, who lives in Price. We drove out there and spent the day with Jesse and his family. Jesse took us to see some cool stuff and the boys were totally stoked!

First we drove out to the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry. There are a lot of Jurassic-era dinosaurs—mostly carnivorous ones, too.

Jay and his not-so-happy face.

018 Sai checking out the dinosaur dig.

019 Boys checking out rocks. Sophie even got in on the rock collecting action. Surprisingly, no rocks came home with us.

Then we drove out to the Buckhorn Wash Pictograph Panel. These pictures are pretty amazing!

On our way back from the pictographs we stopped to find a fossilized dinosaur track. Sai was the first to find it and he was so excited!

043 Sai and the track. 041 My hand in the track. It was pretty big!

Our final stop was The Wedge. It’s the “Little Grand Canyon”. I was super nervous and not wanting the kids to get anywhere near the edge!


It was a fun and dusty day. You can see all of the pictures here.

    It looks like everyone had a great time. I know that your boys love dinosaurs and it looks like Sophie will as well.

    I haven’t been to the wedge overlook in years. It is beautiful there. Looks like your family had fun.
