Lots of ordinary things lately at Etobicoke Creek and Joshua Creek. Of course, when I began hunting in April 2019, I couldn't imagine finding such treasures, but there you have it. At the former location, we seem to have fun finding "How many decent-size orthocone nautiloids can fit on one rock," and the number appears to be 10 or 12 in some cases ! We also seem to be able to find snakes when we lift rocks, which can be disconcerting. Recently I noticed some unpromising "wavy surface" rocks, but they had a layer underneath with branching bryozoan fragments. Turns out, there are lots of them, and some are the largest chunks I've ever seen. So today I was out in the rain, getting muddy. I had to leave lots of great rocks...they were reasonably heavy chunks. Tree roots along the creek had split up the shales, pushed some promising rocks through to the forest floor, and dumped lots of slabs onto the creekbank. When I get some of these rocks cleaned up, I hope to post some pictures. Meanwhile, here is a group of recent finds.
