Pinon Canyon land grab

150 million year old dinosaur tracksThe US Army at Fort Carson is trying to annex a million acres of Southeastern Colorado to test its new weapons. The area is called Pinon Canyon and contains the longest extant dinosaur tracks anywhere. The 150 million year-old Allosaur and Brontosaur tracks extend one quarter mile along the Purgatory River.

Come to the Colorado College meeting tonight, Tuesday September 19 at WES hall to learn how we can fight it.

    well.. the place is probably right and the tracks are real.. but you got to come down to reality and tell the truth when you say how old they are, becaause their not 150 millin yrs old.
    they most likley anywhers from shortly before the flood 4500 yrs ago or after it, and it was not a ” brontosuarus” because it was not, brontosuarus did not exists. it was porbably a an apatosaurus or another type of dinosuar…
    but , the earth is only 6,000 yrs old but if you want to belive the hoax of it being millions you go right a head, but its a lie.
    thank you for your time

    No matter their age, the impressions left in what has become rock are worth preserving right? These particular tracks have shown us that such beasts walked together, not alone.

    It is an amazing feeling to stand in those footprints and imagine seeing the surrounding landscape as the dinosaurs did. It makes tangible their presence. Visualizing whoever left those tracks draws them right out of the diorama and into our world.

    Why are creationists such psycho freaks? Can’t post anything even remotely about science without them twisting it into an argument about their dumba$$ religious beliefs.

    This is an amazing trackway & a fantastic photo–thanks for posting about this issue.

    I guess that I don’t really follow wht your cause might be. Is the Army actually trying to destroy these dinosaur tracks? I find that kind of hard to believe. From what I’ve studied, there is usually a lot more biodiversity on military bases and more protection afforded to sensitive resources because stuff like this is made off-limits to the general public.

    Bases are often made off limits because there is unexploded ordinance lying around.
