Atlas Obscura

“There is something new under the sun, every day, all over the world …

Atlas Obscura is for people who still believe in discovery.”

This is the mantra of Atlas Obscura, a neat collection of the world’s weirdest, most wonderful places, and what you’ll find there.

No matter where on Earth you are (literally, they have every continent, every state, even the littlest of towns), there are places to discover such oddities as “miniature cities, glass flowers, books bound in human skin, gigantic flaming holes in the ground, bone churches, balancing pagodas, or homes built entirely out of paper.”

Pretty neat, huh? And wait, look-y here!

Our very own Florissant Fossil Beds made the grade:

“Fossilized stumps of a redwood forest litter the site, which is the most prolific source of fossilized insects anywhere in the world.”

I mean, I’d go check it out.
