NWR but had to share

Maybe this makes me a geek but I think this is absolutely incredible; on Monday it was announced that some 10,000 year old mammoth bones were discovered right outside of my town (Snowmass Village, CO).  They held a press conference at my work and they had some of the bones on display (pictures below).  What's amazing about it is that the bones aren't fossilized...here's the article if you're interested.  http://tinyurl.com/2675vhl

ETA:  here's a better article...  http://tinyurl.com/2cbonpo

    Thanks!  It was just so cool to actually be able to see the bones.  It almost gave me chills to see something that old, and the fact that it was basically in our back yard.

    Oh yeah definitely. I always wished I would find some kinda cool thing in my backyard! Like dinosaur fossils! So to actually know of someone who it happened too sounds so cool! hahahaha.. I wish I was there to see them in real life! I love looking at stuff like this!
