I'm happy to add a new Allosaurus to my Light-fossils collection, one of my favorite dinosaurs. This theropod lived about 150 million years ago (before the T.rex at ~ 67 million years ago), was around 30 feet in length, had serrated teeth, and was a carnivorous predator at the top of the foodchain.

This bridge was a pretty sketchy place in the dark. There were leaves and debris that had built up in gaps between each of the wooden planks, any of which could have broken an ankle if you weren't careful. You can't see it, but there is a creek about 9 ft below the bridge, I thought a troll would emerge any second.

The rain had lightened up for a little bit and I got this one shot before it started to pour again. It poured for the next two days straight.
