He's also part of the team that found an almost complete set of T-Rex bones in Escalante. @whydirt/@revelphotography and I met him and a convoy of photographers the day they brought all the journalists to photograph the fossils.

(On a side note, I'm pretty sure this was the journalists who was eating a banana right next to me and I wanted to fight him for it.) https://www.sltrib.com/news/environment/2017/10/15/nearly-complete-tyrannosaur-fossil-airlifted-from-utahs-grand-staircase/ . . . #haydukelives#thruhike#thruhiker#hikertrash#hikinglife#utahisrad#utah#trekking#trex#fossil#science#trailangel
