The coal mining town of Tumbler Ridge in northeastern B.C. has been converted to nearly a ghost town with its population plummeting from over 5000 to hardly 1500 in 10 years time. Suddenly, dinosaurs appeared on the scene and the town is again coming back to life – not real life dinosaurs but their footprints!! It was an accidental find – two boys age 8 and 11 were tubing down the rapids when one of them stumbled and fell off the tube – the boys then swam to the other side of Flatbed Creek and saw the first faint footprint of a dinosaur. They finally came up with a total of 26 of them. The finding has been authenticated by experts from the University of Alberta as belonging to the four-toed Ankylosaur that would have been at least 10 meters long. And – thanks to the find of the two kids, the fairytale began of the coal mining town coming back to life from being a ghost – now tours are also conducted to visit the place.
