The Mammoth Site

One of our first stops in South Dakota was a Mammoth Site in Hot Springs.

Daddy is super into dinosaurs. He actually helped to dig up plesiosaur in Ashfall, Nebraska once. I thought for sure one of our boys would be into them to. They both played with them, but they were never a favorite.

The Mammoth Site is pretty cool. I think it's amazing that it's so big. Pretty much everyone that works there is a volunteer.

Mica and Isaak were both picked to be volunteers to hold up mammoth bones.

Here's the dig site. I'm not sure the boys understood what they were looking at. I thought it was pretty cool! Mica and Isaak seemed more interested in their old school phones that we could hear our tour guide on.

They had other rooms to view some cool things.

Have you ever been to a dinosaur dig site.

How awesome that your husband helped with a dig! Not many people can say that, I'm sure. :)

This does look like an interesting place to visit. The pics are fun too.
