as mention in the earlier reply, copper canyon has many tracks and they're extremly fragile. a lot of them is still in a harden sand that can be crumbled with hand or foot pressure. in that area you will find camel, tarpie, sabor tooth cat, antelope, horse, and many other tracks. no fish because it was an intermitend lake.
i think [north west] of salt creek you will find more tracks
fossil footprint cyn about 1 mile north of cow creek are tracks of camelite, tern, [we think] cat and water ripple action. that area is listed in Bryan's Explorer's Guide to DV. and the rangers will tell you how to get there.
years ago i heard about titanothere track in its canyon and i hope to find them next week. the rangers deny any tracks.
