For this week’s Monday Geology Picture I’m featuring another picture from my friend Aimee, who provided last week’s picture as well. This picture shows one of the Cabazon Dinosaurs, giant dinosaur sculptures standing along Interstate 10 in California near Palm Springs. Originally built starting in the 1960s to attract visitors to a roadside cafe, the dinosaurs are now part of an extensive roadside attraction and a museum that, unfortunately, promotes Young Earth Creationism and the denial of evolution.
Thanks for sharing this neat picture, Aimee! It’s a pity that the Cabazon Dinosaurs are now used to promote geological nonsense.
