Alot of fossils west of APS powerplant. I seen a giant leaf imprint in a sandstone. About the size of a stove. A Navajo guy told me there is a giant snake that lives out there in those Hogbacks west of APS. Nobody goes out there.

My five year old is so thrilled to learn about this, he wants to be a paleontologist. how lucky he is that there could be fossils waiting to be discovered right in his own backyard!

The dinosaurs had their heyday during the Jurassic, which preceeded the Cretaceous. Mammals appear in the fossil record in the late Cretaceous, just before the dino's went extinct. Whatever happened 65 million years ago, catastrophic meteorite impact?, the mammals were able to adapt but the dinosaurs did not. There were a number of other creatures that also went extinct at the end of the Cretaceous, like ammonites.

I think the most interesting geo-extinction was even earlier at the end of the Paleozoic, about 250 million years ago. Creatures like trilobites developed very bizzare curved and horned shells before they bought the farm. And it was just after this massive ocean die-off that reptiles took over the continents.

OOPs, meant to say primates appeared in the late Cretaceous. Earliest mammals were in Triassic, but that age really was for reptiles.

News Flash. New species of mutant NM democrat/communist politician is waiting in the wings to take over for the soon to be extinct richardsonian billosaurus. Long live the miasma of reverse darwininism.

Yet another reason as to why, this area is such a great place to live. Take you kids out into the bush, show them some local history and let their imagination run wild.
enjoy all,

Discovered yes, but must have permission to excavate. My grandson is sitting on pins and needles to go explore. I'm thinking the Bisti will be plenty busy this spring, eh?

Look for,(I think), the Morrison formation. It will be grey/ purple-ish, devoid of plant life and in some spots, loaded with fossils. Im 43, but am instantly turned into a 5 year every time I stumble acoss a fossil with my two girls.
have fun,

The Jurassic Morrison Formation is not exposed at Bisti. You can find the Morrison in the area between Gallup and Grants. Also is exposed west of Shiprock and around Tucumcari. Be sure you have permission from the land owner before you go hiking. If you can, take your kids to Dinosaur National Monument. http://www.nps.gov/dino/index.htm

How about south of Santos peak in Governador? Dinosuar is great, plus a great place to raft through. I could go on and on about SE Utah, it is my Mecca.

Santos Peak is in Tertiary sediments, even younger than Jurassic and Cretaceous. There might be some mammal bones and petrified wood in that area.

Tons of petrified palms.... and the on top of Santos peak there are some Dinetah Govenador Phase ruins. A hairy climb but worth it. There is some Chinesse porciline shards that the Spanish used to trade with The Navajos, globalization has been going on for a while. lol

Thanks, I have never climbed Santos Peak but will do it some time. I work a lot in the San Juan Basin and love to fish the quality waters below Navajo Dam.

I have a son who would give his right arm to go exploring with you, Hillbilly.
He's into the petrified wood, rocks, fossils etc. If it can be found on the ground he's good.
I have always said, I could drop him off in the middle of nowhere, leave him with water and backpacks and go to Albuquerque. I could pick him up on the way back, and he still wouldn't be ready to quit. LOL

LOL, have you hade a chance to check out the southern part of Barker Dome? Neat stuff.
My 3 wishfull trips would be to walk Chinle Wash from the San Juan River to Chinle NP, walk Chaco Wash from east of Shiprock to Chaco NP and hike from Tsege, Az past Navajo National Mounement.
My favoutite place in the world used to be Cedar Mesa, before the guide books came out.
Nothing is better then to be humbled by human or natural history, while being in the wilderness.
enjoy your time in the bush,
