Today’s focus was the entirety of the Hanna Formation below the lake beds around camp.
For fun, we started in the Cretaceous Steele Shale, looking for more vertebrate material. We found a large chunk of long bone.
We then worked up through the Hanna Formation, splitting rocks and finding fossil seeds and fruits.
We paused at a vertebrate fossil locality, and our whole crew of nine collected fossils for nearly an hour.
After a leisurely dinner, then the fun began. It involved beards. And portraits. And science. More on that later!
