Dino Discovery

Paleontologists in Montana made a suprising discovery when they broke open the thigh bone of a T-Rex and found soft tissue that had not fossilized. Kind of interesting in a Jurassic Park, creapy way. I thought that was a cool article, but really I just wanted a chance to post another picture of the kids at Dinosaur Park.

Dinosaur Hill

We were driving home from church one day when we first moved here, and Emily said "I can see a dinosaur!" She was about 4 years old, and I thought she was just being silly. But she insisted that she could really see a dinosaur, "right up there!" So I bent down a little to see from her perspective, and sure enough, right at the top of the hill in front of us was a big long-neck dinosaur.

It turns out that there is a park with a few dino statues at the top of a hill over looking Rapid City, who knew?

That story about the dinasour bones is really cool! I wonder if the other palaentologists who haven't cracked open any bones are kicking themselves for not being the first person to do it?

What a fun park! HR could use one of those.
