  1. It's been a challenging season on the Peace River for various reasons. Was sidelined for most of Feb and March with some minor health issues and forbidden by my doctor (and wife) from going in the water until all was healed. Add to that what appears to be a tremendous amount of sand built up in some of my favorite hunting spots by last seasons heavy rains. Then throw in a lot of debris restricting portions of the river to narrow passages. All together it has hindered my luck with any major finds. Can only hope for some of the success our friend Jack - @Shellseeker has been having lately!

    What is that smell?

    What is it about a rock fossil that smells so putrid? A fossil i have stinks to high heaven and almost unbearable to be next to it, especially when it's wet. It's like the smell of dirt but dirt will have a poopy smell to it this has like a high metallic sort of smell and I cant understand why it smells so bad. It smells like a ore of some sort is only way i can explain it.

    Wood and Bark from Colombia

    Hi all, I found a number of wood fossils in a recent trip to Villa de Leyva, Colombia. I'm not sure of the period as there are a wide variety of geological bands in the area. I have the feeling the lined fossils are Calamites but would appreciate some help confirming and potentially identifying the others. Thanks in advance

    Seeds?

    I have a couple of rocks that look like seeds. What do you think? Do those look like bite marks on the one on the left? Let's hear your thoughts. The one on the right was in pea gravel at a playground in Iowa, I find fossil shell fossils in pea gravel sometimes. I'm not sure where I got the other one, in central Iowa.

    Dorchester Cape (July 2018)

    I hadn't blogged in a while, but here's my latest excursion (I have more but I'll have to dig up the information, and some are still pending field work/research) On July 5th I went for a drive down Beaumont, in the Memramcook region in South-Eastern New Brunswick (Canada), to check how bad the road along the coast had eroded with time since the last time I went down there rock picking. I stopped in a few places to check on the rocks down the beach wherever I could go down, and spotted the cliffs of Dorchester Cape across the Memramcook river. Hopped in the car and proceeded to m

    Need Some ID-ing Help - Round Two

    This is my round 2, of things i found, and helping me properly name and catalog them. First picture, i think is some kind of coral? 2nd picture - Coral also maybe? kinda looks like little suction cup suckers? 3rd picture - Some kinda spiral shell? 4th picture - Another type of shell 5th picture - probally some type of clam shell, i was excited at first and thought it was a crab top shell. 6th picture - I find alot of these types, a shell of some kind? 7-8-9 - This one is weird, looks like some kind of shell, but then looks almost like it has teeth or l
  7. Hey all, I am in need of a little assistance. I am starting a new research project on the fossil record of American Chestnuts and am having trouble finding any information on their early history and evolution. I have found that they started in Louisiana and moved up northward, but I am having trouble finding dates on when exactly. I was also curious if anyone has an idea of where a good site would be to maybe find an American Chestnut tree leaf (or chestnut) fossil? I know some have been found in Oregon and Idaho, but I am looking for somewhere near southeastern Tennessee. I am willing to mak
  8. October of 2014 saw a few storms that rocked the coast of Joggins pretty good. In sites like these, the day(s) after a storm is the best day to see if nature revealed more of its secrets. I invited my friend Ray to come down South to Nova Scotia with me for a little trip and boom, on the road with good company! For people that don't know what or where Joggins is by now (look up my previous posts or just search for it on the 'InTeRnEtS' via a search engine), you'll find out that this UNESCO site plays a crucial part in trying to understand our past, before the domination of giant diapsids, a

    Clifton (June 2014)

    As I promised myself, this has now become a yearly trip for me. As I'm getting ready to head out soon, let's reminisce on a previous trip that happened on one, if not THE hottest day of June of 2014. ..as one comes down from the wave breakers near the wharf of Stonehaven I checked the weather for that day and I knew it was going to be a hot one, but I never anticipated what hot was in this area. I've prepared but soon to find out I could have been more careful. But I digress. Moving on. If you've been keeping tabs on my previous Clifton posts, you'll remember that these layers are mostly
  10. Someone searching the Maritimes for nice articulated plants would ususally end up being referred to known fossil localities in Nova Scotia such as Sydney, Cape Breton. The ferns and other flora found in the coal rich cliffs of Cape Breton are of exceptional quality, but what if I tell you that there's a location in New Brunswick that yields specimens that matches in quality? This province has made many contributions to the field of geology and paleontology since Mitchell and Gesner in the 1850s and the days of the Stonehammer Club. There had been a lull for decades, but with the surging in ge
  11. Continued from Part 1 After taking a moment to try to sum up some courage to go down the cable (stupid fear of heights), we made it down to the beach and proceeded to walk North and around Cranberry Point. Cranberry Point The strata of these cliffs, as of many of the coast in this area, have a small angle, making identification of specific layers traceable for long distances. Coal seams were numerous and shale layers very thick at some spots. Getting closer to the North-East section of the point, we could start seeing Carboniferous flora such as calamites and trees in situ, in their gro
  12. From my blog post http://redleafz.blogspot.ca/2013/04/joggins-march-2013.html I had been cooped up for a few months and the last few weeks of winter had been brutal health wise. I thought at one point I was having cabin fever symptoms. A few weekends ago I had taken a nice little drive in the Cape Enraged (New Brunswick) at the end of my bout with a nasty flu. The weather had been a little bit better and the Sun was actually gonna make an apparition for much of the weekend, so there was no way I would stay at home and not partake in a little road trip! I drove South to Joggins for a shor

    Joggins, Nova Scotia (2013)

    Taken from blog post http://redleafz.blogspot.ca/2013/07/joggins-nova-scotia-june-2013.html Being on vacation meant being on the road, looking for rocks. That also meant that during that week, I had to make at least one stop at Joggins, in the wet province of Nova Scotia, where the bees shoot flames, and.. ok, lets move on. Here's a few photos of my trek down the beach. Like always, be mindful of the tides. Not knowing when high tide comes in could spell trouble as exit routes are not easily found. So you'd end up stranded for a few hours, so really not recommended to stick around when hi

    Clifton, New Brunswick (2013)

    Taken from blog post http://redleafz.blogspot.ca/2013/06/clifton-new-brunswick-2013.html During my vacation, I made a day trip to Clifton, in northern New Brunswick. I've been to that location last year and made some interesting finds, including some nice ferns. This trip wasn't as fruitful as I had hoped, but I managed to take photos of the numerous trees in situ (surprised by the number present) and the drive in itself was nice. Always be mindful of the tides when you venture down these beaches as you could get trapped with not many ways out. Getting my stuff together Where most

    Economy Point (Copequid Bay)

    From my blog: http://redleafz.blogspot.ca/2013/04/economy-point-copequid-bay.html Back in August of 2012, I took part of a walk organized by the Fundy Geological Museum (FGM). It was in the middle of the week (Thursday August 9th, I think), so there wasn't any tourist or non-employee beside myself. The gang consisted of geology students and staff, led by Ken Adams, the curator of the FGM. Looking out towards Cobequid Bay Economy is located in Nova Scotia, East of Parrsboro in Cumberland County. From Parrsboro, you take the 2 road and head East, past Five Islands Provincial Park. Economy
  16. **NOTE** In Nova Scotia, it is illegal to collect fossils or archaeological artifacts without a Heritage Permit or proper authorization. You can message me if you want more info. Hang on tight, my posts are usually long winded! [Taken from my blog: http://redleafz.blogspot.ca] Not too long ago I had made a list of fossil locations I would like to visit when I felt more knowledgeable and honed some of my field work skills. I had told my friend Matt Stimson (who works in the field of palaeontology) that I thought of heading East in Cape Breton sometime in the Summer. He wanted to tag alon

  18. Continued from Part 2 Lycopsid tree with bark (top of tree) One of many eagles we sighted flying over us. The high winds will sometimes push small rodents off the cliffs and result in their untimely deaths. This proves easy pickings for those winged predators. We had a guardian dog at Blue Beach, might as well have some guardian Eagles at Joggins. Those were incredibly BIG birds, over a meter in width easily.

    Sticks And Stones...stems?

    We're taking a closer look at our finds from St. Clair and one of the more interesting fossils is a well articulated stem of some sort - about 7 cm long - broken into two sections. It's in a 3D form attached to the shale so it can be seen from several views. There is a smaller stem fragment associated with it, lying close to the main stem. The last image shows the broken off portion of the main stem. One of the closeups seems to suggest this had a sheath. Also, there is a very thin fossil fragment protruding from the edge of the shale close to the stem that has some texture. There are no
