You know what's amazing? Getting your dinosaur on while standing with your feet in 100 million year old dinosaur tracks! And that's exactly what I'm doing in the photo below, and what you can do at Dinosaur Valley State Park just southwest of Dallas.
Here are the tracks without my dinosaur feet in them. This particular set is on a ledge above what locals call the 'Blue Hole', a deep bend in the Paluxy River that's perfect for swimming. The tracks are often submerged, depending on the level of the river.
This set of tracks is on the riverbank, but is likely submerged sometimes as well. This was the only set of tracks we saw that were cordoned off.
The fossils we found in a nearby rock were pretty amazing, as well.
You may have heard some absurd things about overlapping dinosaur and human tracks being found in this area, but rest assured that there's a perfectly logical explanation: these prints were a hoax perpetrated by the man who 'discovered' them. When he ran out of dinosaur tracks to sell, he simply carved more, including some human footprints just for fun.
Dinosaur Valley State Park has a great campground and several miles of river to play in, but more on that later.
