Rowena Manuel, one of the founding members of GeoScience Adventures, discovered the Yellow Brick Road Dinosaur Tracksite on state land while exploring the Bighorn Basin with her husband, Cliff, and her nephew, Dr. Erik Kvale. As Row was hiking down the dry wash, she discovered exposures of three-toed dinosaur tracks in the limestone outcrop. The further she walked, the more tracks she saw.

This led her to remark to herself “What will I tell my companions – I walked down the Yellow Brick Road!”  And, the name stuck!

Like the Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite, this meandering dry wash contains hundreds of rare Middle Jurassic age dinosaur tracks embedded in limestone. The dinosaur tracks exposed here are similar to those in the Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite. Our GeoScience Team has determined the age of these tracks to be the same as those at the Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite - 167 million years.
