Dinosaur bones have been found in Denali National Park. The bone fragments were discovered this summer by a team of University of Alaska Fairbanks and National Park Service scientists. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the researchers found the bones on a mountain slope in the Cantwell rock formation, north of the Park Road.
