Sorry about the duplicate pictures. Anyway, I passed through Ashley valley on a road trip I’ve been on visiting paleontology sites in Utah. Supposedly Ashley valley could be the location of the fabled Great Valley over 65 million years later. I will post a picture of mine that I took from a hill in Dinosaur National Monument overlooking the valley in the photo gallery, because for some stupid reason it keeps saying the file size is too big to put here.
If Ahsley Valley were the Great Valley, does that mean that the “Great Divide” is actually the Grand Canyon?
Possibly? I haven’t even thought of that
That could be. However, in that thread over on GOF, the guy says that he ultimately thinks pretty much any canyon in the Southwest could be the Great Divide. I went to the Grand Canyon for the first time a few weeks ago, and I’ve seen quite a few canyons around New Mexico and Colorado that I’m sure would be plenty to separate a young dinosaur from his family, including one that the guy who started that thread showed a picture of (Glenwood Canyon in Colorado).
I happen to have some other ideas for real life places that might correspond to places in LBT, but the only one I can think of off hand is that the place where all the longnecks flocked to in LBT 10 where they purportedly threw the sun back up into the sky looks an awful lot like the Meteor Crater in Arizona. Just a thought.
Here’s a link to the thread (my username over there is Littlefoot505): http://www.gangoffive.net/index.php?topic=7703.0
