What do rhinos in Nebraska and geysers in Billings have to do with the Yellowstone Hot Spot?
Here's a place that will help make "hot spots" (volcanism) more interesting to students. Its the most fascinating Earth Science place I've ever visited. . . The Ashfall Fossil Site in north-central Nebraska. Over 100 rhinos, as well as many other prehistoric animals, have been unearthed there since its discovery in the 1970s. They were buried beneath 8 feet of volcanic ash! To find out what this has to do with the hot spot beneath Yellowstone Park and learn much more about the site, CLICK HERE.
