therre is an even more interesting fossil -- in the upper rio grands
valley of new mexico, there is the imprint of a bare human female footprint
in a sandstone outcropping that is around 10 -60 million years old. The
girl was walking and tripped. seh overcorrected by extending her foot and
made the imprint in the once soft mud of the riverbank. It left a deep
impression clearly visible. You can even see the potho;e she stepped
into, and the splash marks extending out from it.....
