Last year, to celebrate finishing my undergraduate degree, my girlfriend and I went on a long (9,000+ mile) road trip around the western US and at long last (a little over a year since their discovery) the last of the fossils we found are out of the refrigerator and I’ve finally gotten all of them photographed. Here are some of the highlights and best fossils we found. A rough map of the route of the trip While the trip wasn’t entirely fossil centric we wanted to hunt at a few cool spots along the way.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks for how to keep mudstone from cracking and delaminating as it dries out?

Hey everyone, I'll be in central Idaho (near Stanley) during the week of August 21 to see the eclipse, and it would be great to get some fossil-hunting in while I'm there. Does anybody know any good spots within a day's drive of central Idaho? I've read a little bit about Clarkia and the fossil bowl to the north. Has anybody hunted there? How was it? Thanks!
