Huhoney and I went on another little venture into the desert a couple of weeks ago after the Fort Pierce ride. This time a little further to see the dinosaur tracks. VERY VERY COOL! We walked where the dinosaurs walked and I was really impressed, so were the prints in the rocks! Enlarge this photo to read about the area, I thought is was very impressive. It was a busy Saturday. Lots of people out and about on four-wheelers and sand buggies (we were in the sand dunes area) and tons of kids on motor-cross bikes. Full geared suites and helmets. My grandson Owen would have been beside himself! But here are a few pics of the tracks I took.
I am sure they look a little like this, (pic taken from the internet)
This area was once covered in water called Lake Bonneville.
I know I have mentioned before about fences and how they seem to intrigue me. I would just like to meet just one person that had a hand in placing this fence. It goes on for miles and miles and miles, up and down and in rocks and hills….
see how someone had to wrap barb wire around this rock to keep it in place and to keep PEOPLE out! the land past the fence is BLM land. Bureau of Land Management. But there are a lot of people that cross the line…
The water would run off the mountain side and down this raven and through this gully then into the wash…. I would not want to be in this area when it rains, it could be.. dangerous…
We stopped and did a little skeet shooting. Have you ever done that? I love it! 2nd time for me. The rifle was a little heavy, Huhoney had several for me to try. Our son has his dad’s skeet throwing thingy so Bob just used a hand held chucker….LOL I DIDN’T HIT ONE OF THOSE ORANGE WHATCHMACALLLITS. Huhoney had a grand ole time…I tried chucking those little rascals and they never left the sling! LOL so he had to throw his own, then shoot.
He was a sharp shooter in the Marine Corp. He didn’t miss a beat not ONE orange thingamajig. He chuckled and had the biggest smile on his face. But one thing I did hit!
was the tin can that was actually on top of this plank. I missed taking the picture. Hey it is hard trying to use BOTH eyes to look down the barrel of a rifle! LOL
OH I JUST REMEMBER THE NAME OF THE THINAMAJIGS…
I love shooting clay pigeons!
we stopped at some very interesting boulders….it looks like there have been many a wars here….. (paint ball)
Great places to hide and seek in….
This one even reminded me of a huge skeleton head of a dinosaur? NAH…..
Wish all wars ended like this…..don’t you? (these are some left over paint balls found on the ground. The boulders were splattered with lots of color, I can imagine what the targets looked like!)
So one more adventure ended on that beautiful Saturday afternoon. And “Big Foot” left his print in the sand, but I don’t think the winds and desert will keep it there for long…..
BTW, 8 down….20 to go. I am doing well. ;0)
