It was 13.3°C with few clouds. The wind was calm.

Reading a National Geographic magazine in the Safelite lobby. I’m transported back to my 12 year old self and dinosaurs are magical.

Scientists think Utah bordered on a huge body of water millions of years ago. That explains the Great Salt Lake. Utah was part of a giant finger island called Laramidia, a steamy, swampy place that was teeming with dinosaurs.

Today, archeologists and paleontologists are hiking further and further into Utah’s badlands in search of fossils. And what they’re finding is a treasure trove of new, uncategorized skeletons and relics.

Adrian, Christine and Anne Marie said thanks.
