“learn about the American West”

During the 1890s, scientists rediscovered what the Lakota Sioux already knew - bones preserved in one of the most complete Miocene mammal sites in the world. Yet, this place called "Agate" is a landscape that reflects many players - from early animals roaming the valleys and hills, to tribal nations calling the High Plains home, to explorers passing through or settling in the American West.

Definitely a cool site to check out if you're in the area. The bones are super cool, as is the history of the place. Note that the Monument is open from 8:00am until 4:00pm in the winter between Labor Day and Memorial Day.

Interesting visitors center. The trails around in the visitors center are nothing to write home about. Fossil Butte over in Kemmerer, Wyoming was MUCH more interesting and better laid out. Overall, worth the stop if you are in the area.
