World’s largest continuous dinosaur trackway now belongs to the US public

The largest continuous dinosaur trackway in the world has been bought by the US Forest Service, putting this magnificent monument into the hands of the public and protecting the site from mining. 

Located in Ouray County, Colorado, the West Gold Hill Dinosaur Track site features 134 consecutive dinosaur footprints that extend for nearly 97 meters (318 feet). The fossilized prints were stomped into the ground around 150 million years ago by a single sauropod, the clade of dinosaurs with notoriously lanky necks and four thick, pillar-like legs. 

Last week, the US Forest Service announced they had purchased approximately 27 acres in Ouray County, a portion of which includes the rare trackway.
