Found this piece while walking on a newly excavated (6-8 inches deep) plains path about 30 miles southeast of Boulder, Colorado. I'm new to the area and trying to ramp-up on the geology and fossils with limited background knowledge but much time being retired. Overwhelming and fascinating! Several hikes to Dinosaur Ridge and Dr. Bakker's museum in Morrison. To my untrained eye it looks like a rib or similar flat bone piece. The dark interior color and texture seem somewhat "different" (?).
REW01 posted a topic in ColoradoI am originally from Black Forest just north of the Springs, but I've never really gone fossil hunting in the area. I've certainly done my share of hunting in road cuts and public lands as a kid on roadtrips and camping with my family, but that was years ago and I don't remember really where any of those places were (aside from Dotsero; that'd be difficult to forget). Regardless, I'll be heading there late this summer in August to visit family for maybe a week or week and a half. Reading strat columns and geologic maps is no problem; I have a pretty good idea of the rocks that could outcrop on
