A Dino a Day: A CHRONAL ENGINE Celebration XI

And, for the penultimate A Dino a Day, it's the T.rex wet T-shirt contest at Barton Springs Pool!  Or something like that.   

Me, tree, shallow end
The cone marks where the diving board used to be
Looking toward the north end

Grimacing, before I take the plunge.  Or maybe there's just something with the goggles.

This T-shirt features everyone's favorite theropod superimposed over the Public Library of Science emblem (kind of hard to tell, but it's there).  The PLoS organization publishes the PLoS ONE public access scientific journal, which was very, very helpful in researching CHRONAL ENGINE

Here's a link to the PLoS ONE Paleontology collection.

The T-shirt is from the PloS store at

The photos were taken at Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park.  For those of you not from Austin, the three acre pool is fed by underground springs and maintains a constant temperature of around 68 degrees year-round.  Needless to say, it is an Austin favorite during the purgatorial Texas summers.  And, yes, Zilker is the same park with the Hartmann Prehistoric Garden.
