Theodore Roosevelt National Park – Medora, ND


August 28, 2010 – Theodore Roosevelt National Park

We were actually surprised by how awesome Theodore Roosevelt National Park ended up being!  We liked it even more than South Dakota’s badlands.  They had a terrific Prairie Dog Town for one, and we all know how much Sonny is obsessed with prairie dogs.  :)  And it was incredible amounts less crowded – which is always a bonus.  We visited South Dakota’s badlands the day before and it was nearly impossible to even find a spot to park and enjoy the views.  Here however, we probably only saw maybe a dozen cars for the three hours we visited.


“I love diggin’ in the dirt
With just a pick and brush
Finding fossils is my aim
So I’m never in a rush
‘Cause the treasures that I seek
Are rare and ancient things
Like Velociraptor’s jaw
Or Archaeopteryx’s wings

Now all the kids
Who wanna see ’em
Are lining up
At our museum

I am a paleontologist
That’s who I am, that’s who I am, that’s who I am
I am a paleontologist
That’s who I am, that’s who I am, that’s who I am

Could it be an herbivore
Crushing plants with rounded teeth
Or ferocious carnivore
Who moves so quickly on its feet
It’s like pieces of a puzzle
That I love to try and solve
It’s so fun to think about
How a species has evolved

And all the kids
Who wanna see ’em
Can check ’em out
At our museum

I am a paleontologist
That’s who I am, that’s who I am, that’s who I am
I am a paleontologist
That’s who I am, that’s who I am, that’s who I am”
