Fossils of Washington State

By December 9, 2009

Follow me on:

Thanks to Phil Leinart for pointing out a lovely new item from Good Nature Publishing Company: a poster displaying the fossils to be found all over Washington state. There's everything from trilobites and cycads to whales, camels, mammoths and ginkgos, plus a few oddities like D.B. Cooper, Bigfoot, and what must be a jackalope.

That is a great map created by Ray Troll. By the way, Troll made it for the new exhibit that opens at the Burke Museum in Seattle later this month. The show, Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway, is based on the book written by Kirk Johnson with illustrations by Troll. It’s a fun romp through the fossils of the west, with some good science and a cheeseburger or two.
