Tumbler Ridge is becoming very well known for an exciting claim to fame. Dinosaurs - or at least the remains of dinosaurs. The only place I've ever seen any has been in museums during a school field trip. But in Tumbler Ridge they are right there in the rock. On the advice of the great staff at the Info Centre, I was directed to an easy hike that leads right to some foot prints left in the rock - right in a river bed. The trail is well marked, the scenery is lovely and at the end of the trail there is a picnic area next to the dinosaur tracks. I was in awe. It was kind of like Jurrasic Park. It is certainly one of the most unique hikes I have ever done.
