I was sifting through some old photos that I took in June of 2007 when we attended a wedding in Colorado. We took a side trip to Red Rocks Park, to see the Amphitheatre that is built into large red sandstone outcroppings.
I was most interested in the area known as Dinosaur Ridge located nearby the amphitheatre. It contains the footprints of dinosaurs that walked on the floodplain of Colorado’s ocean on Morrison’s sandy beaches. When the western mountains starting building 70 to 80 million years ago this area was pushed up forming the unique geology of the area.
