Someone at the visitor center at the national monument recommended that we stop here. We were skeptical as often we find stops at places near natural resource national monuments/parks end up sort of disturbing (like around Petrified Forest... bleh!) Wow are we glad we followed...More

I was advised to try Ulrich's Quarry because of the deeper color of the fossils and better, and potentially bigger, specimens. He was right. The folks were super friendly and our guide, Logan, took us to the sacred grounds. This quarry is kept really clean...More

Just on the way to the national monument, Ulrich's is in a great location. Very low key operation - don't be shy about stopping in. Fabulous display of specimens for sale and if you're serious they'll take you down to the prep room where there...More

We visited Ulrich's Fossil Gallery on a recent trip to Kemmerer to look for fossils at one of the pay-to-dig quarries. We were warmly greeted and shown around their incredible fossil store. We learned so much about the fossils - it's very museumesque. The specimens...More

Stop here on your way through - you won't regret it. The displays are amazing. It is incredible to think about these large fish being here and how they are displayed is great. If you don't have time or energy to dig, they have small...More
