Summary:Join student paleontologist, Adam Marsh, on a journey through time as he explores the ancient landscape of Petrified Forest National Wilderness Area. Through his expedition field notes, Adam takes us on an adventure to the long lost Late Triassic, exposing an invisible world of dinosaurs and other creatures hiding in the fossil record of what is now a desert landscape. Through Adam, we come to appreciate this unique wilderness as more than a natural resource: it is a resource for knowledge and a playground for the imagination.
