Issue Cover

American Road  |  Volume 9 No. 1  

The Spring 2011 issue of American Road® marks the first issue of the ninth volume. Informally called a "Dinosaur-Sized Edition," it contains some fifty-percent more pages than the issues from the magazine's earliest era. The lead feature—"Jurassic Lark: Driving the Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Highway"—explores the largest scenic byway showcased to date, a rocky, rolling romp 512 miles in length that loops around Utah and Colorado catching compelling destinations in its claws. Travelers can weigh the provocative wisdom of naturalist Edward Abbey while strolling around the sandstone circles of Arches National Park. One can find a fossilized tooth as a volunteer digger at Mygatt-Moore Quarry near Fruita, Colorado, and consider an ossified diplodocus femur at Dinosaur National Monument.

"American Road’s Dinosaur Drive" appears as the latest ensemble piece. Eleven of American Road® magazine's best authors investigate twenty-four dinosaur-famous sites around the US and Canada, from the one-of-a-kind archaeopteryx fossil at Wyoming's Dinosaur Center to the toothy mouth of the megalodon display at North Carolina's Aurora Fossil Museum. Astute eyes might note two Jurassic giants missing from the tally: California's La Brea Tar Pits and Virginia's Dinosaur Land earned independent places among our antediluvian features.

Atop this bedrock American Road® department editors toss additional alluring bones by visiting the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, San Solomon Springs, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, and the Lincoln Highway's Fossil Cabin. "Route 66 Kicks!" author Jerry McClanahan goes so far as to shape a fossil-fuel tour of the Mother Road through Oklahoma and eastern Texas. Now, that’s a slick kick.
