Chalk Mountain

by keeweechic

Chalk Mountain is a ghost town some 12 miles west of Glen Rose. The main attractions there seem to be the cemetery which holds over 350 graves but I have to say that I went from one end of the road to the other and found nothing. The signpost to the cemetery is at the beginning of the road but you see nothing further to indicate where it may be.

The other 'attraction' is the Chalk Mountain Masonic Lodge. This lodge was chartered on December 8, 1904 and moved to its current spot in 1989. The top part of this lodge was moved from the 2nd story of the original building and put on a new foundation and cement block. The images of a ghost town that I had wasn't quite what I found.

Off US 67 on Road 198 in Erath County.

Fossil Rim: Emu

by sswagner

This native Australian animal can be found in various areas of the reserve. They wander freely in the pastures and can be found near the children's center. Since they appreciate handouts, these large birds are not shy about approaching cars. Sooner or later, their comical heads will be facing your car window.

Something New Has Been Added...Dino World!

by VeronicaG

Tying in with Dinosaur Valley State Park, Dinosaur World may be just what the kids need to help visualize these prehistoric creatures. Although this attraction is not connected with the state park, it does nicely contribute to the learning experience.

You'll see over one hundred life-size dinosaurs in a pleasant woodsy setting, read about their characteristics and appreciate their true size. T-Rex, Brachiosaurus, Spinosaurus and Triceratops are all waiting to be discovered!

Pack a picnic lunch and linger for a while, visit the gift shop to find fossils, toys, artifacts, educational materials and perhaps even some dinosaur eggs. A fossil dig can uncover a real shark's tooth, dinosaur fragments or some other treasure that can be taken home.

Our 13 year old grandson thought he was too old for this attraction, but it would most likely be appealing for those children age 12 and under. Actually, I think I would have liked it!

Hours are 9 am daily. Admission is $12.75 for adults; $10.75 for seniors and $9.75 for kids 3-12. There is no charge for parking.

Fossil Rim: Greater Kudu

by sswagner

We did manage to spot at least one variety of the Greater Kudu, which is an African antelope. It is easily identified by the stripe patterns on its body. There are not many of these animals at Fossil Rim compared to others, however they might be easier to spot since they are close to the pasture area.
