Weighing about 6 1/2 tons, the dinosaur Tyrannosaurus rex lived on the Earth about 65 million years ago. Visitors are welcome to come see this replica of T. rex on display in Cabazon, California (just off Highway 10), right next to the Dinosaur Museum.

In my numerous drives from Carpinteria to Joshua Tree, I have always been glad to see this replica from the freeway. Because Cabazon is about 30 minutes away from my final destination of Joshua Tree, this is a sign that I am almost there. Wanting to keep a good hand at figure painting, and taking a liking to T. rex, I opted to use "him" as a model.
