Date Visited: May 2021
Any Location Updates Since Visit: As of May 4th 2021 I have spoken with both National Parks Service, Idaho Transportation Department, and Nez Perce County. I had a conversation with the Nez Perce Battlefield Archaeologist who told me that anything on the roadside of the fence is not part of the NPS system. This means that the fossils that are in this roadcut are in fact with in the public right-of-way.
