Fossil Point

I am in Green River, UT for a few days for the purpose of exploring the San Rafael Swell. This afternoon, I drove to Fossil Point, the site of dinosaur bones that date as far back as the Jurassic Era 145 million years ago. Here are the remnants of what I believe are a couple of fossilized bones that I found...

Carbon dating suggests these bones are almost as old as my cousin Chris

I, intentionally, did not stand too long in any one spot lest a young archaeologist mistakenly classify me as an "old fossil" that needed to be covered in plaster of Paris and shipped to a museum (I hate when that happens).
