How did you celebrate dinosaur day? I hope you celebrated it by roaring at people and telling them to Never Forget the Dinosaurs. I did some of that, but mostly what I did on Dinosaur Day was ROAD TRIP!
Along with two of my most intrepid and adventurous associates, I journeyed into the expanses of the desert (ie: to somewhere near Palm Springs) to go to the Cabazon Dinosaurs. You have probably seen the Cabazon Dinosaurs. They’re in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure! And they’re the largest fake dinosaurs in the world! They were built in the 1960s, and they used to be a real dinosaur museum. They are still a dinosaur musem, but with an extra special twist: a few years ago, the Cabazon dinosaurs were bought by CREATIONISTS! So basically, we had a really good time. And we learned SO MUCH about DINOSAURS.
The photo essay is after the jump! This is the first part of our trip. Exciting Dinosaurs are coming in part two!
Before we ventured into the desert, it was very important that we stop for provisions. Specifically, it was very important that we stop for provisions at The Donut Man in Glendora. Because at The Donut Man, you can get these:
Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3, titled respectively, “Look at all these dinosaurs!” and “What I learned from Creationists.”
