blog-0839397001338784245.jpgI took a friend and her daughter for thier first fossil hunting adventure yesturday and we did pretty darn good. Here is the cutest fossil little hunter around, meet Max blogentry-3008-0-42121500-1338782851.jpg

At first I was able to dislodge a piece that was about five feet across but it was so heavy. Although it was very exciting when it came up in one piece, we desided to break it and this is what we ended up with. blogentry-3008-0-13239200-1338782965.jpg We came away with 8 very nice fossil plates, two of which we're 27 and 29 inches in length.blogentry-3008-0-37245400-1338782945.jpg blogentry-3008-0-36094800-1338782951.jpg blogentry-3008-0-59839300-1338782958.jpg blogentry-3008-0-58909000-1338783991.jpg We plan on going back very soon and with help in case we are able to get a bigger piece. I want to clean it up a bit it has a muddy film over it even after the powerwash. If anyone has any tips on cleaning and maybe sealing it please let me know. I want to hang mine eventually
