What beautiful weather we had for these two first fossil hunts of the season through the Eagle Bluff Skills School! Friday was our traditional afternoon class and Saturday was our first morning class. The morning classes are great for those who want to buy one of the three fossil hunting maps I have compiled for Fillmore and Winona counties and go hunting on their own the rest of the day.
Site 1 offers an abandoned quarry, cave, a hidden stream where rare Silurian fossils can sometimes be found and great roadside hunting!
Off to Site 2 and lots of fossils found here! It was hard to get people back into the Eagle Bluff van to get to our last site!
Site 3 always yields lots of fossils!
And sometimes we get to meet the local inhabitants! LOL 😀
In my opinion, a must see before you come and fossil hunt is the documentary video, 26 minutes, “The Mysteries of the Driftless”. Fossil hunting is a great family outing! I put together this post on fun things to see and do in Bluff Country which includes this video and others with lots of links:
