When I stood up on this rock and peeked inside this is what I saw. It was completely silent, and totally peaceful.

Finally after many hours of driving we found it!

The town is so small. And every place was closed by 4 pm by the time we got there so it was almost like a ghost town. The market was open for a tad bit longer but no one took the keys out of there cars or nothing. I have a feeling this is a don’t need to lock the door kind of town.
I hope it stays innocent like that.
I was horrified at there library. It was as big as my closet!!!!

So thats the path we walked to the amazing amount of fossils. I am not an avid fossil hunter so I though I had to break things open….boy was I wrong!!! Ekkkkkk just sit and look at the rocks is all. Pretty soon I had fossil fever!!!

It was so fun! Way too cold but worth a trip back!!!
