Texas Tyrannosaurus Tracks

It seems like finding dinosaur footprints would be unexciting, what with there being billions of them and all. And yet, more are being found. There's a "dinosaur freeway" of tracks from New Mexico to Colorado that have new tracks revealed, usually after a flood. Imagine cowboys riding herd on dinosaurs for that distance. Well, they did a sizable trek from Texas to Kansas in the heyday of cattle drives, but cattle aren't prone to eating horses. Sorry, my imagination needs to be lassoed.


More tracks on the "dinosaur freeway" have been discovered, this time in Texas. The Genesis Flood models offer the best explanation for what is observed.

Anyway, new dinosaur tracks have been found practically in the backyard of the Institute for Creation Research after a flood receded. Several kinds were found, puzzling paleontologists. Yet again, creationists' Genesis Flood models have the better explanation.
Spring rains flooded the Dallas area this year, including Lake Grapevine which is about 10 miles west of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) campus. Record water levels submerged entire lakeside parks and adjacent roads. As the water slowly receded, it revealed a reshaped shoreline—and dinosaur tracks. What kinds of creatures made these marks?

Local news interviewed area paleontologists who made casts of the dinosaur tracks. The paleontologists will not reveal the tracks' exact locations, but showed that some were theropods and others ornithopods. The former includes tyrannosaurs and the latter includes the most numerous dinosaur kind in North America: the duck-billed hadrosaur. Ronald Tykoski of the Perot Museum of Science and Nature in Dallas said in an online video by NBC 5 News that perhaps the theropods were hunting the duckbills.

What preserved these dinosaur tracks at Lake Grapevine? Secular explanations leave plenty of room for doubt. They tell tales of dinosaurs wading across placid ancient shorelines surrounding a vast and shallow inland sea. If those conditions somehow preserved footprints back then, why do the same conditions erase footprints today?
