Fossil Sites Near Mammoth Lake?

Recommended Posts

Hi, right now I'm at Mammoth Lake for vacation. And I'm wondering if there's any fossil sites within 20 miles of there. I'm also going to Yosemite. Are there any fossil sites near there as well? Thanks.

Not much in that area other than igneous and metamorphic rock. You may find some petrified wood in the strata between the pyroclastic flows and the granite exposures that cover some of the crest. The only deposits that I am aware of personally are further north, near hwy 4 at Ebbetts pass or east of Silver lake on hwy 88.
