Time-Travel in CO

DinoRidge

When visiting Colorado, time-travel can be as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. At Dinosaur Ridge, I walked from the present back 100 million years… and then looked even further – to 300 million years ago.

The Red Rocks Amphitheatre (above) is carved from 300 million year old exposed rocks. I painted this from Dinosaur Ridge (by Crocodile Creek).

Do you think Dave Matthews, Sarah McLachlan, and U2 all knew they were playing in 300 million year old sediment?
