Here is an iphone panorama shot of the exposure:
We did find the expected fossils. There were some exceptional finds, of whole trilobites and of what is likely Eocrinoidea!
I just have to share with you a picture of someone I admire, look up to, want to be like. Not only did she find some of the best whole trilobites, but she is an octogenarian!!!

The final site of the day was a return to the east shore of Bear Lake. We'd been shut out before by the rain and hail storm. This afternoon was beautiful; perfect for hunting Pleistocene bivalves and gastropods.

It was a great trip and I am grateful to WIPS and the field trip leaders Joe Dabelko and Dennis Gertenbach for putting this together.
