Everyone Loves a Parade – #Paleontology Field Work 2018 – Day 11

Today was our weekly “town” day, which means we got showers last night and the day today to re-stock for another week in the field.

It was also coincidentally the 4th of July, which is kind of a big deal in the United States.

There was a parade. Here are some highlights:

The parade starts with a giant flag
Taking a break from fighting wildfires.
Smokey Bear took time out of his busy schedule to say hi.
Pride in Vernal. I cheered really loud for this float.
Norwegian Fjords are my favorite breed. And this hearse was beautiful!
My dream ride.

We’re going back to camp tonight, then on to a few more days of field work. It’s been great so far. I’m looking forward to getting my boots back on the ground!
