A chapter of the book "Dinosaur Atlas: An Amazing Journey Through a Lost World" is presented which offers information on Cedar Mountain Formation, a major location for the study of Early Cretaceous dinosaurs in North America. The Early Cretaceous rocks of this site occur in eastern Utah and parts of Colorado which also include the sandstone of Arches National Park. According to the author, it is possible that the top predator of the Cedar Mountain Formation was Utahraptor and part of a backbone, possibly of Brachiosaurus, was excavated in this site.
