You’ve gotta love a town called Fossil. I mean, the local petroleum-products supplier here is called Fossil Fuels. And you can actually dig up fossils on a hillside behind the local high school, with help from a trained geological interpreter—and take away all you can hold in your hands, for five dollars. Besides, the people in town are friendly, and it’s set in the middle of some of the most scientifically significant surroundings in Oregon.
