Nimravis posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI got of Chicago a couple hours before the snow came today- This has been such a bad winter / spring in Chicago - last weekend it was 80. I digressed, back to fossils. Today with a nice temperature of 72 degrees, I did about 3 hours of collecting at the Anna and Vienna road cuts in southern Illinois. These Mississippian road cuts are conveniently located off of I-57 and 146 (Anna) and I-24 and 146 (Vienna). I first stopped at Anna- you can collect on each side of the road, but like many sites, you need to look closely to find fossils. Here are a couple pictures of how the fossils were found. Here are a couple pictures of the fossils that I found at Anna. Pentremities spicatus Blastoids/ I do not have my scale cube handy, so I used a standard pen. Horn Coral- Archimedes screw- Crinoid stems- (I only pick up these to show that they are present) Brachiopods- Vienna finds will be next-
