Can you find a string of articulate vertebrae (back bones) of any of the many dinosaurs preserved on the cliff face?

Some of the bones on the cliff face are still connected to other bones from the same skeleton, just like when the dinosaur was alive. Paleontologists call these bones articulated.

Can you find any of the long, narrow, gently curving ribs on the cliff face?

The long-necked, long-tailed sauropods, like Camarasaurus, when full grown, had ribs that could exceed 5 feet in length.  See if you can find them.
