dinosaur trackway

This summer some Australian exchange students who were working for Tim Millward came across dinosaur tracks in a steep canyon setting. Though they were not sure about it they had read the local literature and therefore knew that such a find was possible. Later, Tim went to the site, got a locality reading, took photos, and brought his laptop in to the Peace Region Palaeontology Research Centre (PRPRC) in Tumbler Ridge to alert the palaeontologists to the potential discovery.

One look at the photos made it clear that this was an important find, and a subsequent visit to the site has confirmed this. There is a neat little trackway with a number of larger prints criss-crossing the track-slab. This may be suitable for helicopter retrieval in the future.
