Gettysburg, Pennsylvania - Dinosaur bridge

In Gettysburg National Military Park there is a small stone arched bridge on which the rocks contain many fossils. There is a 5-inch, three-toed dinosaur foot print on one of the stones. On the other stones on the bridge there are fossilized mud cracks, water ripple marks (like mini-sand dunes), and worm bore holes.

Dinosaur bridge:
From Little Round Top in Gettysburg National Military Park, follow South Confederate Avenue south past Big Round Top on your left. Shortly you will reach the stone arched bridge spanning Plum Run. There are no markings on or around the bridge.
