Early Season Searching

Recommended Posts


I am new to this site, but I am desperately searching for a place in Wyoming or Colorado to take my father on a dig. We were excited to head out with the Ulrich group in Kemmerer, but as it turns out, the quarry is not yet open due to snow. I am here visiting only until Thurday this week so I am looking for a site (paysites are just fine) where we can go and dig for fossils..can be plant/inverts.

Thanks so much!

Will you be here on Thursday, or are you leaving on Thursday? I am taking a few FFers fossiling in eastern Wyoming on Thursday. It is probably an eight hour drive from Kemmerer. I'd have to ask the landowners if I can bring more folks out.

If you can find a copy of Rockhounding Wyoming (Falcon Press) there are good directions in there for Turitella Agate south of I-80, much closer to Kemmerer. There is also Eden Valley and Blue Forest petrified wood. Google these and you will find directions. They are also in SW Wyoming.

PM me if you need to.
