The Museum in Green River, Utah

 The Mancos Shale exhibit at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum in Green River Utah, is now open.  Along with a couple of dinosaurs and other murals, it is a very nice addition to the museum.  In the distance on the right you can see the ammonite I found and posted about back in this post, and after it was prepared in this post.

Here is a view of the specimen with the mural behind it.

  And the sign telling about the collection and preparation. 

And a few of the other ammonites I donated (the six on the left).  And more of the large mural behind it, unfortunately showing a wounded scaphite, or is that just the leftovers of a large marine reptile it just finished eating. ;)
