Black and White Wednesday - 200 Million Years Ago

the long road

Black and White Wednesday is run by Lisa over at
The Long Road to China.

This sidewalk history lesson can be found at Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill, CT. This park is so cool, it has its own website! The park is home to "one of the largest dinosaur track sites in North America." (Taken from the aforementioned website.) The tracks date back to over 200 million years ago. Part of the trackway has been carefully cemented and built into a museum so that people can see them up close and personal. A large portion of the trackway was then recovered with a dirt mixture to preserve it until the state can afford to put up another building. This is a fun, interactive place that is great for kids and families.

There are also hiking trails and gardens, but the tracks really are the main attraction.

Love, love the bare tree branches and the shadows across the bridge. Lovely.
