Hey Fam! Going to be in Franklin, NC for a few days in October. I’m fixin to do as much rockhounding as possible which I believe goes without saying. I’m looking for resources in the form of Areas where I can sift, walk river banks and what mines (I probably only want to spend money on one) are worth the time devotion to. My parent’s place is on a mountain which is full of creeks. Am I bound to find some neat stuff just hopping from one to another? What can I expect? Any information is greatly appreciated!!! Edit: I grabbed a UV light off Amazon because I’m told Rubi
So I found these fossils around Tukwila Washington. I'm not looking for an ID but I'd just like to share with you some of the gastropods and bivalves I found along the way And for all you Washington fossil hunters, don't listen to people who say you need to be in Utah to find fossils, they are everywhere here (Information: These come from the Eocene time period 40 million years ago. Some of these fossils are Turritella Uvasana (Identified by Professional) some gastropods, some pecten looking shells (still not sure) and bivalves of unknown species.)
