Top Side – Getting Ready to Find the Littlest Fossils – #NTCave2017

Today, I spent my time on the surface. I did a little cleaning while everyone else was in the cave.

Clean camp is clean.

Then I got things ready for screenwashing, a process by which we rinse dirt away from tiny rocks and fossils in sediments.

Ready for screen washing.

We had some journalists present, who are working on a documentary for PBS.

Dramatic action shot!

The day ended like all days at Natural Trap Cave… With a beautiful sunset.

Sunset over my wee abode.

I think I’ll be topside again tomorrow so watch out for pictures of tiny fossils!
