Somewhere in the northern part of Nebraska… nestled between grass-covered hills… is a prehistoric watering hole where animals caught in a super volcano were fossilized. The site is far enough away from the volcano, itself that death wasn’t instant. They died over the course of weeks after the eruption.
This is a working dig site, and if you’re lucky (or prepared) you can catch the paleontologists at work.
This one was a little tough to find. Not many markers, and even the small towns nearby don’t seem to celebrate their catastrophic event de celebre. There were a handful of other people, mostly in the barn and the paved trails, and past that, I didn’t see anyone.
