On Sunday morning we bade our hosts good-by and headed to Southwestern Adventist University. Their Archeology lab is amazing! They actually have a whole Triceratops skull with its 3 horns! It’s huge! There were many bones from other dinosaurs including T-Rex which made for a fascinating tour! From there we went to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. We were able to see a full-size skeleton of Paluxysaurus Jonesi, the State Dinosaur of Texas, and a single bath-tub-size footprint of it was tempting to sit in. At least we didn’t have to worry about getting stepped on! The Mammoth tusks there were impressive as well. And the 4-D theater was fun, too. Getting sprayed by water seemed to get the most reaction from everyone! Some of the Pathfinders enjoyed going to the DinoDig and “practicing” unearthing dinosaur bones. Though it was a little frustrating to dig them up and then not be able to pick them up. The whole weekend was a great experience and a good time was had by all!
