This video was taken by Don DeBlieux when the UGS paleontology team left the excavation site and headed home. Jim Kirkland and Scott Madsen were with him.
Don DeBlieux: “This was shot yesterday around 12:30 p.m. as we were trying to leave our Stike’s Dinosaur excavation. Our usual way out was blocked by a large mud hole from the previous day/night rain, so we tried the only other way through Yellow Cat flat. Things were looking nice and dry until we got to Yellow Cat Wash that drains a large area of the Book Cliffs. We figured this would subside and would be a better bet than the mud hole. We had to wait about 3 hours until we felt confident that we could get through safely!”
