Dinosaur Valley State Park

Ken and I spent part of our vacation in Glen Rose with Whitney at the state park. I can remember taking her daddy to the same place when he was a kid. This is a great place to take the kids. It’s adventurous and they can really swim, touch and stand in honest to goodness dinosaur tracks.

Whitney is sitting on one of the limestone outcrops into the Paluxy River at Site 1. There are dinosaur tracks on just about all of the outcroppings. This area is called the Blue Hole because the river is about 20 – 23 feet deep. The rest of the river throughout the park is inches deep. It’s very clear and a beautiful color. Whitney was checking out the minnows that swarm about you if you are on the limestone.

Can you find my face? If you look hard you'll see me looking back.

Whitney and I went to a car show in Mabank not too long only to discover the cars were litteraly history. She spotted the park right off and headed in that direction. I had my camera so we played a game of “lets see if I can swing faster than the camera can shoot.”

Below is the outcome:

or am I falling? Neither - just swinging!

Am I marching or dancing? Neither - just swinging!

After the swings, Whitney thought she’d move on to the see saw. Only grandma isn’t as good as Whitney when it comes to this fun ride. Lucky for me it began to rain so we left!
