It is very windy here, so if you're stopping for a dinosaur photo op, be sure to not wear a dress or a kilt.

Pterodactyl at the gem shop.

Ginkgo Gem Shop Dinosaurs

I visited this rock shop this summer. It is a very nice place. They have local petrified wood. They have so many kinds of rocks it's hard to list them all.

It is right next to the Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park.
