I had never been there so I did not know what to expect. It was a beautiful day to be outside and we had a great time.
The first thing you see, when entering the park, are 2 huge dinosaurs. I am not really knowledgeable about this kind of thing but they sure looked scary. I am sure to small children it is very exciting.
Two fiberglass models; a 70-foot Apatosaurus and a 45-foot Tyrannosaurus Rex. They were built, under commission of the Sinclair Oil Company, New York World's Fair Dinosaur Exhibit of 1964 - 1965.
|I sure hope the fence can keep this big monster in....RUN David....RUN!!!!|
You can read more about the preservation of these tracks by going here.
|I found this fossil as we walked along the river. I have no idea what it is.|
I will do another post about the River and and other Natural features of the park. I have a few more photos, too, but do not want to slow down this post too much with an over load of photos.
There are so many State Parks around here...I had no idea. Now I want to see all of them. The Dinosaur Valley State Park was so much fun.
