Cliff Dwelling in Utah Found to Have Unique Decoration: Dinosaur Tracks
Scientists searching for fossils in southern Utah have found that they certainly weren’t the first to prize the traces left behind by dinosaurs.
While on a break from a fossil hunt in Utah’s San Juan County, paleontologists explored a stone structure that had been built under a cliff overhang at least 800 years ago.
While most of the building had been made from cream-colored sandstone found nearby, one piece stood out — the pinkish rock that formed the lintel over the doorway.
It was covered in the fossilized tracks of a theropod dinosaur.
