Dinosaurland 1972-1973

I was sent these pictures of White Post Virginia’s Dinosaurland by reader Tommy Wilson. They were taken in 1972 or 1973.

“I grew up in northern virginia and my dad took me there when I was a kid (about 6 or 7 I recon) I had NO IDEA the place was still there!”

It’s a converted bus, similar to a lunch wagon in concept. From the photos, it looks to be popular to the biker crowd.

Idaho Potato Museum – Blackfoot, Idaho

July, 2008
Hit up the Idaho Potato Museum on our way out to Butte, Montana for the National Folk Festival. Spent the night in Blackfoot, and a very nice, very quirky bed and breakfast.

Why stop at the Idaho Potato museum? I can’t think of any reason not to. Old train station, giant potato, Idaho local history. Hard to lose.
