This map depicts the area where Sue Hendrickson found an enormous, nearly complete T. Rex adult on August 12, 1990. 

The dinosaur's final resting place was in a thin layer of rock in an outcrop which Hendrickson had not previously explored.  When she saw bone fragments on the ground, she looked up, scanned the rock with her eyes and was convinced she was looking at a fossilized creature of enormous proportions.

Faith, South Dakota is the small town closest to the dinosaur's resting place.  Mt. Rushmore is about 150 miles to its southwest.
