We stayed for 2 tours here. The first was a fossil tour -- good thing it was early, because the hill is mostly unshaded. Don't expect to come home with perfect fossils, and do come prepared -- a shovel, bucket, and screen would have been an enormous help, not to mention bug spray and sunscreen. The guide was knowlegeable and... More
