1. Borasaurus Marker
Inscription.  Millions of years ago, the borasaurus roamed this area, It was similar in size to a T-Rex but with a large drill like horn on its head. It was his constant sharpening of this horn that produced such a smooth hole in this granite boulder. This rare example of a borasaurus hole stone was found at the old Johnson lumber camp in 1909.
 
Erected by Clark's Trading Post.
