This morning was spent looking for fossil soils low in the Uinta Formation. No shock, but we didn’t find any.
We did, however find a creepy scarecrow of sorts…
This scared the crap out of me when I first saw it.
A place where caving means something different than what I thought it meant…
I’ve done a little caving. I don’t see any caves around here, tho.
This one little hill was just covered with them!
And a make-shift corral made with a stone wall..
Wonder how long ago this was still in use?
I did actually find some fossil soils, in the end, and a fossil or two, but it felt like a sight-seeing day more than anything.
That happens sometimes. Such is the way of paleontology.
