Visited Nash's Dino quarry in S. Hadley, Massachusetts.. Cool!!

I've been wanting a dino track since I was a kid.. I have never been able to find any "in the wild" that weren't on private property.. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop looking though!!

Here's a pic of the little one touching Eubrontes - thought to be from Dilophosaurus:

I hope she is into fossils and native American artifacts.. I'm slowly building a collection to give to her!

Now let me tell you how hard it is to make a decision on a track when there's hundreds to choose from!! He had a fresh pile of tracks he just pulled and I found this one in there. The pics don't do it justice! It looks awesome. There are two different tracks, one on each side facing opposite directions. They are about 7" long each.

The bottom side

Top side with imprint

Just wanted to share!!!! I love that it is a frozen snapshot in time.. 200 million years ago...
Now I just need a rotating display stand!! hahaa

shawmcky - good stuff! And seeing as how dinos went extinct about 65 million years ago, I'd say the fossils they are finding are well over 5000 years old. This dino print is about 200 million years old!

RCHSF - that's one of my other hobbies There's a couple corn fields near me that produce. Here's a few myself and my wife have found. These are all mid archaic era - about 4-6k yrs old:

Good stuff!! Come on people, there's gotta be more rock hounds!

Very impressive finds Turbocharger. I love them all, but I'm yet to find a clear quartz like that you found. I usually have my best luck walking in small back creeks, along flat bottom fields. I'll tell you a secret maybe it will help you and others. If you ever find several arrowheads in a field in a area of say 100X100 square feet. Start digging. Because Indians would dig a hole in the ground say 1-2 feet deep, and they would fill it full of arrowheads. That was their place for safe keeping.

I have a couple North Carolina ID charts in Jpeg in my gallery if you want them. Indians traded flint and points acrosss the country. So you never know what might turn up.

One good thing about finding them in the ground. Arrowheads for instance, if you dig it up yourself it's real. I do not buy anything. I find it!!!

Made the trek out to Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose this summer. You can't take them with you but there are numerous wonderful footprint specimens to encounter in the natural enviornment.

Here is a huge theropod (carnivore) footprint just under the water in the Paluxy riverbed probably Acrocanthosaurus.

More carnivore tracks

My daughter standing in a really deep sauropod track (Brontosaur) just under the water.

This is a really great park to explore. Highly reccomended for the beginner dinosaur hunter. Especially since you can pick up a map at the entry of the park that is labled "Dinosaur tracks here"
