Tuba City Dinosaur Tracks 2005

Located approximately 6 miles east of the Hwy 89 and 160 junction on the north side of the road, this site is open to the public.  Navajo guides will escort you across the plain, pointing out, outlining and informing you of their significance.  I could spend hours here.  The tracks were made during the Jurassic period near an inland sea or lake in what is now called the Kayenta Formation. I walked out to the edge of the site and found a good shot of the ripples formed at the waters edge.  The Navajo also have a sense of humor.  One of the last photos is a coprolite 'turdle".  Cute.
