While Red Rocks may be known first and foremost a music venue, it also has a prehistoric connection. In 1877, Stegosaurus, the Colorado state fossil, was found near Morrison, Colorado, which is the home of Red Rocks, while nearby dinosaur tracks also tell of the Jurassic Period. Also, fossil fragments of the giant 40-foot plesiosaur, the marine reptile mossaur, and flying reptiles captivate both students and scientists.

The Gorge at George - Hands down the best concert venue.  A natural ampitheater on the Columbia River in the middle of Washington State. It's such an amazing place to see a DMB concert!
