What is it?

Hi all,

 

I'm recently retired and I live in NW Wyoming and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on these specimens? Im particularly interested in the big rock/fossil? at the top of the picture. I found all of these on the surface in a sandstone, drab mudstone formation. Possibly Eocene, Paleocene time frame based on some quick geologic research. Looks like a foot to me but I suppose it could be about anything. The other items were found in the same area with the larger one. The area would have once been the near the edge or boundary of Lake Gosiute an/or the inland seaway I think.

I have enjoyed reading some of the posts, seems like a good forum!

 

Thanks, WyoProspector

Here is another pic of the rock in question. Im still wondering if anyone has any guesses to whether it's a fossil? Zooming in close it appears to me to have some cellular structure but I haven't done anything but rinse it off with a hose and run a medium soft brush on it.

 

Thanks again.

They all look like just rocks to me.
