What are these shells found in a gravel bank along the South Platte?

+0

While hiking about a quarter-mile from the South Platte river I found these shells in a gravel bank.

Most but not all had turned white, and they were in what looked like a gravel bank/deposit but it was a good way from the river.

Does anyone know what animals would have originally have been in the shells?

Keep in mind that rivers change course over time. It is entirely plausible that the river was where you found the shells recently (in geologic time). Olin Lathrop‭ about 2 months ago
