  • It was a beautiful drive to reach the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. While the visitor center is still closed, you can at least go inside to get a map and have all your questions...

  • This place is awesome for families and such. We had such a good time here collecting various leaf and insect fossils. Just make sure to be careful when splitting the paper thin shale with razor blades.
  • Brought my kids here for Father's Day, my kids (3 and 6) loved it. Nancy and the other woman (D?) were helpful and great with kids. Easily found a few nice fossils, great value for a combination of the experience and things to take home.
