Trip to Clayton Lake – Part 2 the Dinosaur Tracks

The main reason we went to Clayton Lake, dinosaur tracks.  This is really something we all need to see.  In my opinion anyway  The pictures do not do justice to how big these prints are.

It really was a great trip, but short.  We should have planned a bit better and had more time.  But on a warmer day!
