Dino Tracks on the Chama?

We've got a chama trip this Spring and I've read about a side hike to some fossilized dino tracks. Anyone know the name of the side canyon or what mile? I'm sure the ranger could give us the info but it would be great to know in advance. Any help would be appreciated... Thanks.

When the water gets really flat by the monastary, Look to river right for the largest of the canyons to open up. Go up the large canyon and they are on river right of the tributary. The tributary has water. If you make it to the day run launch you have gone to far.

I don't know, my Chama guide book has yet to be returned to me and I don't have a topo, but if you say it is I'll believe you

Wait, it's on river RIGHT? No wonder we couldn't find them. I think we hiked up Rio Cebolla forEVER, on a bum tip.

Yeah, the big canyon on river right is Rio Gallina. Any guidance on how far up to go? Are they visible from the navigable part of the tributary or do you hike? (Not that I have a Chama trip this year. But JUST IN CASE.)
