    Just for some red dust. It's interesting what we humans find important and necessary. Thanks for sharing this.

          I think they called it Phosphoria Formation in one of the write ups I read, and there has been some debate if it is a Clovis point or another type.

          Hey Joshua, I think the rock that Bret gave me could also be from the Phosphoria Formation.
