Denver Day 0 (GSA 2010 Annual Meeting)

By October 30, 2010

Before I settled down to an evening of choosing from the banquet of presentations at the meeting (which starts tomorrow and lasts four days), I uncramped my legs with a walk to the Dinosaur Tracks Museum a little west of the Convention Center. Part of the University of Colorado at Denver, the museum is temporarily off the Web, but this notice from the 2007 GSA meeting shows where it is. It has fossil tracks, both real specimens and research-grade casts, from as far back as the Permian (tracks of scorpions, insects and amphibians) and as recent as Holocene (human footprints), but the meat of the show is the Mesozoic dinosaurs and their relatives whose tracks are known all over the West, including nearby Dinosaur Ridge.
