"As the Union Pacific excavated a road bed for the new track, they discovered a wealth of fossil material. The Green River Basin proved to be a rich source of fossils for the next 150 years. http://www.nps.gov/fobu/photosmultimedia/Green-River-Formation-Fossils.htm. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_River_Formation.
