    Aloha Fellow Fossil People!

    I’m planning a month-long collecting trip to SD, WY, UT and CO this summer. I’ll be digging with one organized group in WY in June 23-30, but the rest of the time I’ll be looking for private lands to prospect on, museums to visit, fellow fossil hunters to hang out with/discover new sites etc. If you’re reading this and have any ideas or want to link up, I’d love to hear from you. I’m focused mainly on sites in the Morrison Formation or the Hell Creek.

    • The destinations page on our website ( has just been updated to have a more complete list of museums. For CO my favorite is the one in Fruita and in UT I like the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry.

    • Mahalo! Yes I plan to visit both those museums. I saw that Fruita has a public area where you can dig for dinosaur bones in some Morrison Formation. Anyone ever been there or know anything about it?
