It is the last hurrah for me before the school year begins and I'm back riding the lectern. As some of you already know, I am due at a very special quarry near Lake Simcoe to collect with our intrepid @Malcolmt after his jaw-dropping Astrocystites finds. This space will record some of my journey there, and of course our time in the quarry. We made our way out from London going north by northeast this morning and took the back roads. Those of you who have traveled the Grey Highlands and Blue Mountains area know how breathtaking the scenery can be. We found ourselves in Craigleith by about 2 pm. As some will know, the Craigleith and surrounding areas along the lake are full of Whitby Fm shale from the Ordovician, similar to that which one may find in Ottawa's Billings group. They are full of Pseudogygites latimarginatus moults. Of course, it is not legal to collect at the provincial park. The first is a display piece of a full Pseudogygites.
