Penn Dixie June Trip
ClearLake posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsAfter my most recent field trip where there were at least three other TFF members present, but I didn't know it until afterwards, I wanted to be a bit more proactive for an upcoming trip.

I arrived in town Thursday so that I could rest(11 hour drive) and hit a few places before the dig on Saturday. I hunted Friday at a spot I was told about last time I was in the area but, the weather and other issues did not allow it at the time. This site was beautiful with shale walls here and there with large concretions protruding out. I was told the concretions are where the complete trilobites were, but were extremely hard. Well, this was an understate
