Digging up dinosaurs in Montana

Our recent trip to Big Sky country, Montana, yielded the discovery of new dinosaur fossils and other treasures. We spent some time working on a previously discovered dinosaur named “Carl” and we covered him with a new “jacket” of plaster. Then we visited the high-tech Dino Lab and lent a hand with processing dino fossils. It was fun playing a paleontologist for a few days but the work in very demanding and taxing.
