After checking in and setting up we headed off to do some hiking to see some wonderful ancient rock art. It was hot and sunny, but the pay off was worth it.

Finally, the next morning, we visited the Quarry. DNM is where the Carnegie fossils were found, so being from Pittsburgh, PA I have always felt a special connection to this place. If your kids are interested in fossils or paleontology this is one of the best locations you can visit. We spent hours inside the Quarry using the bone identifying program so the kids could see which species of dinosaur belonged to each bone. We were also able to take a ranger led hike through part of the quarry where we were able to see and touch fossils.
We learned so much from this park and really enjoyed our time there.
