The other day we pulled up next to an old pick-up truck with four deer hooves jutting out of the truck-bed.  YeeHAAAAWWW!!!

Webb and I are planning to go camping again this ‘weekend,’ this time we’ll be roughing it BLM-style, and out of earshot of any major highways…the weather is supposed to be amazing, though it does get cold at night. Most important I need to check when hunting season starts around here, I’ve heard it’s soon.

Dinosaur Flats

After doing some research the other day I realized that the area we were exploring on our last outing (before visiting Red Canyon Park) is part of the Garden Park Fossil Area. The road we were on was called Dinosaur Flats. “Across the street” there is a similar dirt road called oil-well flats.  Here is a map of the area, we were in the Garden Park Fossil area and Red Canyon Park. The following is a description of some of the wildlife found in the area…

The rugged rocky canyons and rolling hills between the grasslands and the mountains support pinon pine and juniper woodlands. The abundance of mule deer here make these areas prime habitat for mountain lions. Although you’re not likely to see a mountain lion, you may see a roadrunner, relatively rare this far north.”

Now when is says that you are not likely to see a mountain lion it is because cats stalk their prey…FUN!!!

What i really wonder is if there are still any dinosaur bones in the area…wouldn’t that be neat.
