Fields work travelog – Day 13, Of seeds and fruits

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!
