1. Dinosaur Footprint Marker
Inscription.  Footprints of a small dinosaur that walked on his hind legs. About 180 million years ago, he left a lasting signature by walking through the mud. The print then filled with sediment, and both print and cast (upside-down here) eventually turned to stone. Tracks of these three toed Jurrassic reptiles are very common in the limestone formations of the Navajo Country.
 
Erected by National Park Service-United States Department of the Interior.
