Re: Fossil tracks - Dripping Springs Trail

From a later paper... "Accompanied by Dr. David White and Mr. G. E. Sturdevant, I visited the Dripping Springs locality at the head of Hermit Gorge and, although only a short time was spent there, we observed tracks in great abundance on the sloping ledges immediately to the north and east of the sp...

Me as well... I became confused when Kennedy Ranch was thrown into the mix (thoughts went to West Pinto, then). Maybe the question refers to Reavis Gap and/or Tule coupled to West Pinto for a loop?
