IGERT Trip to Wyoming: Day 5

Day 5- Sunday- Medicine Wheel, Moose, Dinosaur tracks

Sunday morning started out with a circular route to include geology on the way to visiting the Medicine Wheel, which is a Native American tribal site.  The trek to the medicine wheel proved an interesting journey as the ¼ of the path was through snow and many marmots and pikas were seen along the way.   Enroute to the dinosaur tracks proved to be an exciting journey due to bountiful amount of moose lounging amongst the shrubbery.   Alas the 70 mph speed limits prevented a good moose picture.  The dinosaur tracks had a surprise in store, not only were the dinosaur tracks very small but also there was a ramp formation. IMG_8420.JPG
