My partner and I visited Douglas Pass, Colorado last August: Eocene, Green River Formation, Parachute Member. The site represents a very shallow lake bed and is known primarily for fossil plants and insects. Recently I unwrapped her finds. The first one I think is some type of fossil seed. It is about a half inch long. The second, I think is a partial insect larvae, about an 8th of an inch. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
My girlfriend, Valerie and I planned a two week trip to New Mexico and Colorado to visit friends, see scenery, and attend the Peach Festival in Palisades. Of course fossil collecting would be a part of it. I spent a full day with PFOOLEY outside Albuquerque in the Puerco Valley hunting ammonites in the Carlile Member of the Upper Cretaceous Mancos Shale.
