The Meister Track

Description: In 1968 William J. Meister and his family and friends were hunting fossils at Antelope Springs, 43 miles from Delta Utah. They were breaking open rock slabs with hammers and found many trilobite fossils, which date to 600 to 280 million years ago. When one two inch thick slab was broken open, what appeared to be a sandaled footprint was discovered with two trilobite fossils in the step. Other imprints appearing to be human tracks have also been found in the same area but without the trilobite smoking gun. Dr. Clifford Burdick investigated the area and found other prints as well as the barefoot imprint of a child's foot complete with toes. The Meister Print is located at the Creation Evidence Museum.
