“some of the world's best preserved fossils!”

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 sub-tropical landscape.

A geological timeline of the world wraps around the building and there are tons of fossils inside. It was a nice little stop!

The visitors center is very interesting but if you don't have a 4 wheel drive you can't take the scenic route.
