Murdo Girl…Nightmare on the Paluxy

It all seemed so harmless at first. We thought it would be safe. It’s not like the river was raging…Children were playing in it.

 We were only going to get a closer look at the dinosaur tracks. We should have turned back when we read this is the place where the carnivorous dinosaurs chased the plant eaters..(The meat eaters ate the vegetarians.)

“Come on Mary! This will be fun!” He said.

“We can get across the river here. Watch me,” he said.

“We’ll just wait here,” I said. “It looks like its all uphill.”

“And there is no way to get back down!!” I said. “We’ll have to backtrack for miles.” 

“I’m right behind you! I told you it was all uphill,” I said.

“What is that?”

“Run for your life!!” I said.

“Do armadillos bite people or eat dogs?” I asked.

“I’m not crossing that field full of venomous snakes and possibly big rats,” I said.

“I hear the river,” he said. “We must be getting closer again.”

“Cyndie..Go get help!” I said. “Kip.. Did you bring a flashlight?” I asked.

“Wait! I see a sign! It says the exit is this way! Good job Cyndie,” I said.

6 miles

“A hot fudge sundae, and a banana split!

And two fried pies we’re saving til tomorrow!

“We earned it all,” we said.

    Now THAT was a nail biting adventure. Man eating Armadillos!? But a happy ending to a treacherous hike. Six miles of hiking – some daresay uphill- and you get rewarded with fancy ice cream and apple turnovers (for later). I knew you two were super clever!
