... he wasn't keen to do a walk that far, and I opted to not do it by myself. The quest to see dinosaur footprints has now become a bit of a joke!

After asking a few people for directions and a long, confusing walk, we made it to the trailhead. We decided to walk along the road since the trail seemed too confusing.
