Today has been a delightful day. Much learning was had. Our crew now includes expertise in paleobotany and stratigraphy, so we walked all around the rocks that bracket the Paleocene-Eocene boundary.
I learned a ton today and now beret understand the lake and river environments in the Hanna Formation.
We also found tons of plant fossils and – gasp – insect fossils.
Lots of research plans are being hatched.
This is an exciting moment!
