Prehistoric Museum

To celebrate my surviving a very nasty encounter with what was most likely food poisoning, Beth and I visited the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum.  There, they had ACTUAL Utahraptor bones (including a real, not replica, fossil of a NASTY piece of bone known as the KILLING CLAW), a beautiful and in-tact Mammoth skeleton, and many Fremont Indian artifacts.

Here’s me and the Utahraptor:

It was a 2.25 hour drive, one way, and we drove through some (pretty) snow on highway 101.  Dinner was at Groggs Brew Pub, which was better than we thought it’d be!

My second favorite part of the museum (which included many full size dino replicas, such as Allosaurus and Stegosaurus), was the complete fossil of a mammoth.
