Wyoming Rock Dig - Star Crinoids

I went on a rock dig with members of my rock club - we met in Wyoming and this is one of the digs we went on. We drove out to this site with our tour guide and climbed up this rock Hill/Mtn. We collected Star Crinoids - look for the tiny stars on the rocks. These are tiny star looking fossils, along with some clams and other fossils were on the rocks. These were really cool, but we had to look out for the ticks, scorpions and also rattlesnakes. I saw ticks, another member saw scorpions, but no snakes thank goodness. I have some of these in my rock shop now, so much fun.
