Fossils


    We enjoy going to the Kaibab forest (the North Rim Of the Grand Canyon). There is so much to see and do and the weather is normally cooler than here in Page, AZ. Our last visit included seeing deer in velvet, a hummingbird flitting from pine tree to pine tree, several sinkholes, turkeys, and several (actually 3) good spots to collect some nice fossils. At 8,000 foot elevation and you can find fossils from sealife creatures - shells, coral, sponges, etc, etc.
    Turn off Highway 67 west onto FS 429 and head to coordinates - N36° 33.214' & W112° 10.581'. The fossils are even in the road at this location. From here stay on 429 until you get to 462. Take a left and head south to Snipe Hollow (N36° 31.888' & W112° 12.754'), Take a right and head to the sinkhole at N36° 31.753' & W112° 13.310'. There are fossils all over this area including the far wall of this sink. On the way here watch the rock areas along side the road. Many of these have fossils.
    If the weather has been dry and the driver paying attention most vehicles with high-clearance can make it to these areas.
    By the way - we did leave some there for others to collect.
