Some Of Best Preserved Fossils In the World Are Right Here In Wyoming
When you think about Wyoming history, you probably picture pioneers and cowboys, but we have a rich history that goes back millions of years.
The proof of that can be found at Fossil Butte. Discovered in the 1870s even before Wyoming was incorporated as a territory, the limestone layers that make up the butte have been fascinating geologists, paleontologists, and the general public for centuries. It’s a treasure-trove of some of the most well-preserved fossils in the entire world.
