The bones of a Columbian mammoth—which roamed the earth during the Pleistocene Epoch, 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago—were first excavated here in 1978. Since then, evidence of 22 mammoths has been uncovered on this 100-acre stretch along the Bosque River. You can see some of the remains at this state park, which just opened to the public in 2009.
