Day 4 of the Paleo - Geology Trip

Vernal, UT a town full of 'artistic' dino & culture objects

A hare on our walk to Dinoprints

Dinosaur tracks near Red Fleet Reservoir

A small section of the wall of fossils at Dinosaur National Monument

Looking back at the 'caravan' from the petroglyphs
(Near Josie's Cabin)

Petroglyphs in Navajo/Nugget Sandstone along road to Josie's Cabin
I think this is Fremont culture vs Pueblo (Anasazi).
Pueblo used to be called Anasazi, but that is a Navajo term that means 'ancient enemies' as opposed to the more common translation used  'ancient ones' and some of the current descendents objected to using a Navajo word and that name in particular, for obvious reasons. So they just call them by their current name "Pueblo" which happens to be Spanish, but more acceptable to them.

Kokapelli

Petroglyphs depicting transformation of lizard to man.. ??
See, even the ancient habitants of this environment weren't creationists
