Trip to Dinosaur Ridge in Colorado number Trip to Dinosaur Ridge in Colorado Introduction The dinosaur ridge is located in Morison Colorado. The ridge is located at 16831 West Alameda Parkway near the 6th avenue. The dinosaur ridge is a designated natural national landmark. It was discovered accidentally in the year 1937. During the duration of the trip were able to learn a lot about fossils and were also able to learn about dinosaurs and their existence about 150 million years ago.
We were able to walk through the tracks where these massive creatures known as dinosaurs once roamed. We were able to see dinosaur bones that have been fossilized in rocks. This was an amazing experience as were also able to touch the dinosaur bones. We were allowed to ask as many questions as we wanted and to our delight, our knowledgeable guide was able to answer all of our questions.
We were also able to learn how the footprints have been preserved for over 100 years. We also learnt about how layers of rocks are formed and different types of rocks that are found there. It was interesting to also learn about how palaeontologists are able to look for fossil evidence. This was at the backyard bone site.
Conclusion
The trip was very informative. It is interesting to know that this is where there is presence proving that dinosaurs once inhabited the earth. During the trip I learnt a lot about, fossils, dinosaurs, rock formation and geology. I am now able to understand some of the things that we have been learning in class.
