Ancient seabed claims victim

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Like a dinosaur trapped in quicksand, a trackhoe struggles to get free after sinking up to its cab in the mud east of Cedar Hills Drive in Price. The machine had been working on the new road that will someday serve as the access for the proposed USU energy research center. The region hasn't been a mudbog for many millions of years, but prehistoric conditions had returned as a result of break in the canal that runs through that section of town, which added to all the deep moisture that had accumulated as a result of a very wet year. Unlike some lonesome dinosaur, however, the trapped trackhoe had friends to help out. Another hoe (yellow arm on left) dug away at the surrounding mud while the machine in the pit was able to dig a pathway to escape and haul itself out.
