Saturday the folks visited Dinosaur Ridge. This is a place where you can see actual dinosaur tracks and bones. Mama is really not into dinosaurs because it is hard for her to imagine that they once roamed earth. However, this place makes it easier to imagine. Guests and either walk the 1.5 mile trail or take a guided tour for $5. The folks chose to take the guided tour. Mama said she learned much more by having a tour guide than walking it on her own. The tour guide was very good at involving the children on the tour, but the tour talk was really geared towards adults. The kids knew a lot more about dinosaur than Mama.

|Pretty view along the tour.|
|Another nice view.|
|This is wear the dinosaur tracks are.|
|A little better photo of the tracks.|
|Kids are allowed to climb on the hill to a certain height.|
It is really hard to get decent photos of the tracks, but in person, you can really see them. It is pretty amazing. Mama didn't take any photos of the bones because even in person she had trouble seeing them. LOL
Dinosaur Ridge is a great place to take kids that are interested in dinosaurs. There is a lot for them to do. The gift shop had some tennis shoes that the folks thought were really neat. The soles of the shoes have a big dinosaur footprint on it so when kids walk, they leave a dinosaur footprint. Cute!
Mama has updated her restaurant blog. Table Mountain Inn has some interesting photos - fire at the table side. BOL!
