Big Bone Lick

July 2, 2008

Another big boneI’ve been asked several time about Big Bone Lick so here is a link to the State Park http://parks.ky.gov/findparks/recparks/bb/

Here is what wikipedia says about Big Bone Lick:

Big Bone Lick State Park is located at Big Bone in Boone County, Kentucky. It is located on Beaver Road and between the communities of Beaverlick and Rabbit Hash. The name of the park comes from the Pleistocene megafauna fossils found there. The mammoths and other creatures are believed to have been drawn to this location by a salt lick. It bills itself as “the birthplace of American paleontology” a term which dates from William Clark’s expedition in 1807.

In 2002, the National Park Service designated Big Bone Lick State Park as an official Lewis and Clark Heritage Trail Site.[2] The Park was also listed in 1972 on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Not as bad as your “crimson tide” issue. You just ruined that for me, Jeri!
