When you are approaching Dinosaur Valley State Park, in Glen Rose, TX ~ You MIGHT think it is going to be hoakey because of all the dinosaur statues, signs, etc. but I can assure you, that it is LEGIT and you will be very pleased. It is worth the ride from Dallas/Fort Worth and if the weather is appropriate, bring your swimwear or you will be disappointed for sure.
We spent the weekend crossing the Paluxy River, looking for dinosaur foot prints, hiking and Geocaching. Didn’t think to bring the swimsuits , hence, we were a little disappointed!
Here is part of what we experienced:
I think I know what the below are called but I am not confident enough to say, it was a three toed being:
The below belongs to a much bigger creature. The heel is by my elbow and where it looks a little deeper is like the ball of the foot:
Walking the Equestrian Trail:
Looking longingly at the Blue Hole and wishing we had brought our swim gear, at least there was some good reading:
We did take our shoes and socks off to walk along these pathways. The water felt so cool and refreshing on our feet:
We also had a lot of fun searching for a geocache, if you haven’t tried it, we highly recommend it. Get the app, find the treasure, add/take a little momento to/from the box, log it on the app and go find the next one:
We added the little Chicago Blackhawks trinket, being from Chicago and all….
We had a great time this weekend getting lost out on the trails ~ literally lost. Getting out in the sunshine, getting a little exercise, seeing new sights and opening up a new door for us felt really good.
Anyone have geocaching experience? Any advice? Apparently it is worldwide with over 2 million geocache out there. We are trying to understand trackables….
Have a great week y’all!
