Description

Great, tall, triangle-shaped boulder about 20 yards off the highway. It can be a bit noisy since the road is so close. Despite the noise, this boulder is wonderful, and take note of the bone imprints embedded in it.

Getting There

From I-70 in Grand Junction, get off on US Highway 50 heading south. A few miles out of Junction you will come to CO Highway 141, and you will make a right towards Naturita. Follow CO Highway 141 approx. 5 miles and you will see the fossil boulder on the right hand side. It is a very distinct boulder and very hard to miss. See included picture.

Per Rschap: The BLM has asked people to not climb on it.

Why does Rschap state that the Fossil Noulder is off limits to climbing? Anyone know about this? Hoax? BLM commando enforcement? Jan 19, 2012

The BLM has asked that we no longer climb on this boulder for obvious reasons. Please respect this to preserve the history locked in this rock for future generations. Jun 26, 2010
