Visited this small center with its exhibits of dinosaurs and time lines that are related to the geography of the local area. Interesting talking to the gentleman who discovered a complete dinosaur locally which is now named for him.

Ranger lady was very helpful with pictures and directions on the different hikes and things to see in the area. I appreciate the time she spent. Dinosaurs are kind of interesting too. This is a smaller Visitor Center .. it does have a restroom.

Mind blowing facts, displays and timelines show how dinosaurs roamed the earth, going back 80+ million years. Not just stuffy facts but amazing skeletons and stories. The rangers were also helpful in telling us to go to Antelope Canyon, even though the website said the...More
