The Footprints Of Dinosaurs In Infrared At Dinosaur Valley State Park

Earlier this summer we took a afternoon excursion to Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, TX. Even as an adult seeing the footprints of dinosaurs along the riverbed of the Paluxy River was an exciting experience. Even with recent rain the water was still low enough to allow us to walk along a good section of the riverbed and view many of the footprints. We then took a hike along the Cedar Ridge Trail in the park and enjoyed getting away from the crowds to enjoy the scenery. Though there was a fair amount of hiking on inclines the panoramic views were well worth the walk. For being one of the few state parks near the DFW area this park seemed to offer a  less urban feel for a nice getaway from the city life.

 

The Paluxy River was flowing with all the recent rain in North Texas, yet we were still able to see plenty of dinosaur footprints in the riverbed.

We took a hike up to the scenic overlook on this loop. The aged trees lined the trail on a beautiful summer day in Texas as white puffs of clouds filled the sky overhead.
