Fossil Butte National Monument, Kemmerer

(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Fossil Butte National Monument is America's Aquarium in Stone. Some of the world's best preserved fossils are found in the flat-topped ridges of southwestern Wyoming's cold sagebrush desert. Fossilized fishes, insects, plants, reptiles, birds, and mammals are exceptional for their abundance, variety, and detail of preservation. Most remarkable is the story they tell of ancient life in a subtropical landscape.
