Clayton, NM
These three Dinosaurs stand in front of the Tourist Information Center. The triceratops lost one of his horns sometime between 2007 and 2009. These photos are from 2012. Does anyone know when these statues were installed and who made them? Clayton is home to one of the best dinosaur track sites in the world. [map]
