Domain of the Dinosaurs

Dinosaur National Monument is a paradise for young imaginations. Gazing at the wall of bones is an amazing trip back in time to a land of monumental movie-like monsters. It is for this reason I wanted to dramatize a young boy's experience while gazing up at a skeleton of one of the most prominent dinosaurs found at the monument, the Allosaurus.

My son seems to think the skeleton on display in Quarry Hall is after him. I had to explain that the meat-eating creature was indeed extinct.

The drawing I did for the poster seem less threatening somehow.

So, instead of cowering before the creature, the young boy featured is, instead, impressed and excited by the almost mythical.
