Mammoth National Monument Waco, Texas

We've been out and about lately seeking out places we haven't visited in Texas and the Mammoth National Monument was one we thought the grandkids might enjoy. We often come across fossils in our area (lots of fossilized sea creatures show up in creek beds) and two dairy farmers had a large discovery in Waco finding evidence of Colombian mammoths (not the Woolly kind). In all they found over two dozen remains which deaths they believe may have occurred during a flood.

The Brazos river has overflowed its banks showing how quickly animals could get caught in high water.

good to roam the countryside, like the mammoths

That certainly looks like an interesting place to visit.
