As part of our Dreamland safaris Tour we were taken over to Moccasin Mountain Tracksite to view tracks to view fossil track preserved in layers of Navajo Sandstone. Apparently water was hard to find in this desert. Water was seasonally available which drew animals to the ares where the wet sand formed molds which later became fossilized tracks. It took us a while to find some track but then the race was on to see who could find the most tracks. It is not something we planned on doing but it was a part of the other families tour so we went along. It was really impressive. It is a place that we might have been able to drive to but it was still at the end of a sandy road.

After our visit to the Tracksite we headed back to Kanab. It was late in the afternoon and we still had a long drive to Page, Arizona.
