Prehistoric Gardens

Along with our trip back up the Pacific Coast Highway, we stopped at Prehistoric Gardens on Highway 101.  This garden of life-sized dinosaur models, shows what dinosaurs "may have" lived in the area, and some interesting facts about the area, like the Old Stage Coach Road, and a creek that gold miners frequented.

The dinosaurs from the parking lot caught our attention first. T-Rex was awesome!




Story of the plant life that grew during the time of the dinosaurs.



The annual rainfall for the area.  A lot of people think that Oregon just gets rain constantly, but on an annual bases we get just as much, if not a little less, than some drier areas.






Old Stage Road that ran to the gold mining camps and helped the pioneers get to Oregon during the days of the gold rush.









It was fun to pretend.  


We had a great time!  If you take the Pacific Coast Highway journey, make it one of your stops!
