Dry Dredgers Field Trip
October 25, 2003
As you can see, this large, steep site requires lots of
walking and climbing. You need to take take frequent breaks and drink plenty of
fluids. Way down there (below) is someone.
Yep! There's Cindy taking a break and collecting from the
gutter. Often, you can find some of the best fossils at road level. People bring
fossils down the hill and later only take ones they like or can identify;
leaving many fossils that are amazing specimens.
Two younsters found this nice thorax
of an Isotelus. Here's a young member who was smart enough to
know the slope was too steep for him and waited on the safer ledge for his
parent to finish the climb.
The trip winds to a close (above) with many fossil finds.
While our field trip chairperson, Dan Cooper, thinks
hard about where he is going to take us next month. Thanks, Dan, for
another great trip!!!
Just as most people
were leaving, another field trip began on this popular site. A group
from Ft. Wayne, Indiana, had just arrived. They are a nice bunch of collectors
and a few of our members got a chance to chat with them and exchange fossil
info. Here's a couple of pictures of that group. It was nice meeting you!
