Remember how much we loved to dig as kids – in the sandbox? In the dirt? At the beach? How we pretended we were digging for buried treasure? Finding a cool rock or a seashell back then was just like finding gold. Well, no matter how old you are, you can dig for treasures at this one-acre fossil pit in Pennsylvania. This time, however, the treasures you uncover will be millions of years old.
