Fossil Sites near Phoenix?

Recommended Posts

My family and I are taking a vacation to visit relatives in Phoenix, AZ. Are there any nearby fossil sites we could visit? Also, is the Kohl Ranch paleo site any good?

See my post: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/54157-sedona/ I've also heard that there is good collecting in the Naco Fm. near Winkelman. Search on internet for exact site.

Watch out for snow on the ground especially above 5k feet.

Theyre just about to get slammed with a storm so I'll second that snow warning.

Do you think any snow would have melted by the 10th - 12th of February? Those are probably the days we might go fossil hunting, but it would be disappointing if everything is snowed on.

There shouldn't be much at the lower elevations.

Look at the weather reports for the temps and weather for the areas that you want to see. Call some businesses in the nearby towns to ask where the snow level is at. Generally, there should be snow above 6-7k feet and no snow below 4-5k feet in central Arizona that time of year. However, a cold storm can cause snow down to 2-3k feet.
