Dino Trip 2003 - Thermopolis, Wyoming

After we checked in to our hotel, we headed into town to look for a place to eat dinner. We headed in on 6th Street, US-20, and found that Broadway was closed. We circled around and found Pumpernick's, where Dick had catish and Thomas had a cheeseburger.

Next, we looked at a sculpure and monument to the settlement of Thermopolis, and at a small park with a dinosaur theme. We then headed back to the hotel at sunset.

The Texaco truckstop is right across from the Super-8. Behind, one of the hills is the western part of the Wyoming Dinosaur Center's Jurassic dinosaur quarry.

As we left town for our motel that night, it looked like the Allosaurus was going to eat Thermopolis.
