Fossil Butte National Monument and the Genesis Flood

National parks and national monuments are under the auspices of the US National Park Service. Down Wyoming way is Fossil Butte National Monument, which is famous for asparagus. Just checking, it is famous for fossils.

Officially, it is a ridge, not a butte, it just looks like a butte from some angles. The area itself is the National Monument, and there is a passel of fossils (mostly plants and fish). While you cannot dig up and take home fossils, it is on the Green River Formation which is extremely large. Get fossils from non-government land if you wish.

The official story involves a lake, but the fossils indicate otherwise. Several creatures are distinctly salt water, and it takes a great deal of rapidly-deposited sediment to make the fossils — many of which are excellent. While the NPS tells tales of deep time, the observed evidence clearly fits the global Genesis Flood for many reasons.
Southwestern Wyoming contains one of the most unique fossil sites in the world—Fossil Butte National Monument. Located about 11 miles west of Kemmerer, it was established as a national monument on October 23, 1972. The park encompasses about 13 square miles and contains several buttes, or flat-topped hills.

These landforms expose a rock layer known as the Green River Formation (GRF) and its diverse fossil assemblage, often called a Lagerst├Ątte. The GRF is best known for its fish fossils, but it includes many other fossil types as well. Most of these fossils are found in the Fossil Butte Member, a section of the formation that measures about 200 to 260 feet thick.
