I'm envious of those Fossil Hill ammonites.  :wub: :wub: :wub: That site has been on my wish list for a long time.

I'm home in New York now still awaiting my last shipment of fossils via UPS. I feel very fortunate I was able to visit three amazing fossil sites that have long been on my wish list and glad the I was able to make some excellent finds. The large and desolate landscapes of the West, though, were one of the greatest benefits. I like to thank ynot for showing me the incredible Fossil Hill site and also the staff at American Quarry and U-Dig for their generous help.

All great stuff, but I also noticed those ammonites... I can't remember the last time I saw such nice ones from the Triassic.

Looks like a great trip. Envious of those ammonites, I was lucky enough to hit Kemmerer and the wheeler shale a couple summers back but I have yet to manage to get to an ammonite local and I love those.  Congratulations on a successful hunt

Congratulations on a successful trip out there, Jeff. :) 

Glad you were able to strike three more sites from your list! 

Looks like I missed out on a great adventure.
