The Dinosaur Trackway

Near Morrison, Colorado is a dinosaur trackway. It's about 80 minutes from Fort Collins, but is a pretty neat site that most people don't usually see.

There's a road cut that unearthed the tracks nearly 80 years ago. More recently, the roadway has been closed and is now open just to pedestrians and bikers. There are several signs along the way with information about fossils and the area. There is even a dinosaur quarry where the first stegosaurus was unearthed.

There are also 2 museums in the area, but both were closed by the time we made it down there.
