Photobombing dinosaur fossils. I am standing in the Quarry Exhibit Hall in Dinosaur National Monument. The exposed rock face behind me is loaded with Jurassic dinosaur fossils. I first visited the exhibit hall back in the sixties as a child. In the intervening decades, the hall was rebuilt. The foundations of the original building were set in bentonite soils which shifted and cracked the structure. The new hall’s foundations are much deeper and the hall itself is larger. This is one of the best museums of its type in the world and the spectacular landscapes in Dinosaur National Monument are better than many national parks.
