This is a trip I took last year as we decided to make the trek to Washington DC for our family trip. I would definitely recommend a trip there for the museums alone if anyone has been thinking of going. Even on our non fossil trips, I try to plan a fossil excursion or 2. We got to the site around 11am, and it was quite hot as it is out in the sun. I don't have any pictures of the site itself, but you basically park on the side of the road, and hop over a barrier, and you are right there. Thank you @minnbuckeye for recommendations on parking as safety is always paramount when the family is with me. Thank you to @TNGray for his wonderful webpage once again in helping me find some easily accessible sites for the family. I only got to spend about a half hour at the site as the family was wanting to get moving home, but here's about half the fossils I brought home.
cameronsfossilcollection posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this in some Pennsylvanian aged shale in Ambridge, PA at the well known mahoning exposure. It doesn’t have visible pinnae like the ferns I’ve found in the area, but it could just be a strange preservation. Any ideas - is this just a fern? Thanks!
It was about a month ago that I attended a wedding in Ohio. There was a free afternoon for me to do a little exploring. So I took a short one hour road trip to Ambridge, Pa. I had no tools to use other than a carpenter's hammer that I borrowed. Had I been prepared to split shale with the proper equipment, my results would have been much better. Pennsylvanian, Dutch Creek Formation flora exists in the shale cliffs across the Ohio River from Ambridge, along Route 51( a 4 lane highway) as you cross the bridge. It is a very safe area to collect since barriers are in place to prevent rock slides onto the road. This keeps you separated from the heavy traffic on the road. Here are typical fossils found at this site.
