A great place to visit while driving around Northern Arizona is the dinosaur tracks.

The location is not a protected site or a national park. The reasons are complicated. The land is viewed as a part of both the Hopi and Navajo. This one issue makes oversight of an established park or headquaarters too complicated.

The location is really out in the middle of nowhere. Typically, this location is in between travel to Flagstaff or the Utah border.

My daughters and I took a trip. Down a long empty stretch sits a little wooden sign.
The area has home made shacks where the locals sells their good. There are a lot of worthwhile pieces, jewelry, and other genuine goods there.

The site is open to walk around. However, there are locals who will happily offer a guided tour for a kind donation.

If you go, be kind. Be generous to the locals and enjoy the opportunity to connect.

The woman we met gave us a great look around. She poured water on the tracks to help them stick out.

When I told her that my children and I were there to 'honor our ancient four-legged relations," the guide looks at me and nearly teared up. She told us about her family and her children down in the Phoenix valley. All of this made for a deeply meaningful conversation with my girls on the drive home.

There are debates about which animals made the tracks; don't get hung up on it.
If you are there, you're looking at real fossilized footprints. Don't have a snit if they are not 'real' T-Rex prints.

It's a great stop, and there are quite a lot of them to look at.

Damn man, you’re giving me all sorts of awesome spots to take my kids, in AZ! Just in the last couple days alone, you’ve shown me two spots I’ve never heard of. Cheers mate!

Dinosaur tracks should mean dinosaur bones I would think.
Any history in that area of excavations?

Thank you everyone. I'm glad that you enjoy the photos.

it's not to say that Arizona doesn't have some very dynamic places to see....
but one of the things that I really love about this place is the subtlety and significance. Many of the amazing locations in Arizona are quiet still and ancient. It takes a certain level of appreciation and understanding to get the impact.

The location is really out in the middle of nowhere.


Did you see any Martian Rovers? I hear that area is where NASA is driving them around.

The account that I posted these on was removed a while ago. However I felt that they were valuable. since the account was removed and these are no longer in the archive, I felt it appropriate to repost.

Very cool. There are a lot of smaller tracks same shape. I wonder if it was an adult with younglings around?
