I know that marine fossils & shells are found at mountain tops, and this is because plate techtonics & volcanics push the sea floor up. If this is the case, however, then I would expect not to find fossils at the top of the rockies (becuase they are an inland mountain range) or at the tops of old terestrial volcanoes where the mountain was not pushed up out of the sea floor. Is this the case?
