The Edge Of The Fossil Fields

Today I headed north on Durango Drive to its most northern point. This location is the very south end of the Desert National Wildlife Preserve which I visited a few days ago. The visitor center is a few miles north of here off of Corn Creek Road and the 95 freeway.

There is a walking trail that begins here but there was no way I was going to go for a short walk considering the high wind and upper fifties. In the next post, I will have some photos of the information board that tells much more about the fossils that have been found here which are between 100,000 and 12,000 years old.

There have been excavations near here over the years that were conducted by different paleontologists. This area was once a lush, green area with camels, sabertooth cats, and more.
