On 10/04/2016 Jim Herring, Blake Smith and I went to the Desert National Wildlife Refuge to hike the Yucca Peak Fossil ridge in search of some sea fossils. It was a beautiful day and made for a great hike. Unfortunately, due to the fact that we were all a little out of shape due to a lack of hiking over the summer, we never made it to the top of the ridge. We did, however, find a few fossils and had a great hike. Click here for pictures and a description of this hike ... Yucca Peak Fossil Beds Hike - 10/04/2016 Trip Notes.
