Parowan Dinosaur Tracks | 12 Utah Staycations

Harmony said I should stop at Parowan Gap on our way out of town from Cedar City. So we did of course. But first, I searched The Salt Project for her post about it so I could make sure I didn't miss anything. I thought the Gap was just the petroglyph, but it turns out a bunch of dinosaurs roamed this valley millions of years ago and left some prints in the mud and now you can find them plastered all over rocks. If I'm being honest, I never in a million years would have even noticed the prints, but luckily some really smart people found them and mapped them out with little mettle footprint markers. This area is not only a cool place to stop because of the prints, but the trails and giant rocks and incredible! The kids (age 13-1) had a blast walking around and exploring on their own. There were big rocks to climb, easy trails to explore, and the view was breathtaking. 

There is the foot print marker. And that is a dinosaur footprint there on the rock. I'm just going to take their word for it.

That view!

This spot does not have bathrooms, but the petroglyp's do! Just keep heading west.
