This dinosaur is in the same family as the one we worked on.

of the beautiful 'post-flood' land that God made.

The majority of the kids that were at the dig

are pictured here in a rock crack.

Next we saw paintings that the Indians painted.

Notice the size of the lizard and the size of the man in front of the lizard.

Next we went to Cowboy Canyon.

While we were there we split slate rocks and looked for fossils.

While we were in Cowboy Canyon
DSC03297.jpg
we found a current resident of the canyon.

That next day we took a hike up to the dig site.

The hike was long and dusty!

This is the site where we worked all week long.

You are just looking at half of the Saurapod!

Many of us were given many different jobs,
DSC03494.jpg
ranging from working on bone...

to breaking rock and shoveling dirt
DSC03396.jpg
in order to search for the skull.

Bryce was able to help plaster

the radius and the ulna.

After the bones were plastered it was time to
DSC03535.jpg
excavate the bone.

Now that the bone is out of the side of the hill,
DSC03540.jpg
we put it on a slide and took it back to base.

Tammy Young spent her time using the air chisel
DSC03478.jpg
to finish up some really delicate work on the shoulder blade of the huge Sauropod.

Hannah decided that she did not want to leave the
DSC03317.jpg
dig site so she stayed as long as she could.

One last final group shot before we all left

to go back home.
