    I found the fossils in the Oquirrh Mountains in Tooele County Utah. Most of Tooele County sits on the remains of the Bonneville sea bed. I have one more picture to add below.

    I found these strange tubular fossils pretty high up in a canyon that contains limestone, sandstone and a little granite. These coral or tubular like rocks lined a dry waterfall that ran down a mountain side. I’m not sure if these fossils are some kind of old coral, hydrothermal ventricle rocks of some kind, or maybe even some kind of tufa mound formations. There are some shells and fossils on the corals as well. The fossil formations come in whites, browns, brownish reds, light grey to dark grey. I only posted a few.

    I got permission from my Tooele County to collect and study some of the rocks and fossils on county land in the Oquirrh Mountains (Utah). I’m an environmental science major soon to enter graduate school, not a geologist. So I like to study and collect rocks more as a hobby. The fossils I collect are from 2 separate canyons. The 1st site is high up in elevation on a limestone shale cliff face. This post consists of fossils found at the 1st canyon site. I will post pictures from the 2nd site on a seperate post. I’m trying to ID the fossils, although I have a pretty good idea on what some of them are. I’d appreciate any comments you may have.
