I only got one photo in this morning of yesterday's finds:
|5 kinds of brachiopod, colonial coral, and horn coral.|
|Highway closed while these passed|
Our first fossil stop, then, was the Ordovician site called Skull Pass. Here we looked for graphtolites and eldonia. Now that's an odd creature! Eldonia pictures make me think of a jelly fish with a gastropod inside.

It was hard to leave this place except that it was rather hot. Even sitting on the ground was occasionally uncomfortable because the rocks were so hot. I think we'd do anything to be able to sit and find fossils, though. Still, the itinerary next included the Great Basin Get Together. At this picnic in a nice park in Delta, we shared some of our finds.
