Day 3 of the Paleo - Geology Trip

Me checking out some exposed dinosaur fossils in the Cedar Mountain Formation
(Thanks to Russ for the picture)

Dinosaurs fossils in outcrop of the lower Cretaceous Cedar Mountain Formation SE of Price.
All we brought back of dinosaur ones was pictures as you are not allowed to remove them.
