Nevada - Utah Mega Trip 2016 Day Seven: UDIG and Marjum Pass

July 14, 2016
Starting the day at the UDIG quarry makes one happy with fossil collecting.  You know you are going to find something!  Fresh material had been opened up in a couple different places at the quarry and there was plenty of room for everyone. 

<<== Room for more. 

There must have been some really good finds over there.                                      ==>>

The list of finds that I know of include at least 3 species of trilobite, hyoliths, algae, and brachiopods.  We definitely stayed for the whole of the duration of time we paid for - it was hard to leave!

The gang's all here (except Susie)

Michael's beautiful Asaphiscus wheeleri.

Marjum site
Despite the baking 99 degree temperature, we again formed the caravan to go to another Cambrian site - at Marjum Pass.  Mostly we found Perinopsis here.  A few asteroid fossils were there, too. 

The most unusual specimen Taylor brought down at the end of our dig there.  What is it?
Unidentified, but cool!
