  1. In the Devonian quarry

    Hi everyone! So Friday morning, after a few enjoyable days of skiing in Switzerland with my dad, we decided to leave the village because the weather was really becoming horrible for any further skiing (especially for a beginner like me!). I had done a little bit of research as to what fossil locations we could visit on the way back home, and eventually Kevin @Manticocerasman very kindly pointed me towards the site of Resteigne in Belgium! A (no-longer in use) quarry known for its Devonian brachiopods, corals, crinoids and sometimes trilobites. Which was a fantastic opportunity for me, because in my so far 7 years of fossil hunting I had never been in a quarry or hunted for trilobites!!! So seizing the opportunity, we booked a Bed & Breakfast in the small village of Resteigne. We arrived late that evening after a long and annoying road, but luckily the hosts were still up and warmly welcomed us. The man knew quite some things about the great geology of the area, and told us that apparently this region was now a Geopark of the UNESCO! (To avoid any confusion, we are allowed to collect fossils here without any problems. It is not like the national parks where it is forbidden to take things out). He sometimes found some fossils himself when he was going out on walks. After a good night sleep and a delicious breakfast, we set out to the quarry.
  2. Attention Maryland Residents!

    Any members of the forum who live near or in Calvert County in Maryland, I have a question. Is there currently snow on the ground in your area? I'm considering going hunting at Brownie's tomorrow, but a bunch of snow on the beaches would be a pain. According to the weather channel, it definitely snowed there (and it did quite a bit where I am), but what I'm wondering is if you think it would still be there tomorrow. I think it's supposed to be sunny tomorrow, and maybe the tides will clear the beach of some snow, but I'd really love to know the current conditions if anyone could tell me. Thanks in advance!
  3. Another dig

    I was hoping today to continue on with my foraging expedition from last week, but when I got to my little mountain in the Wutach, there was still too much snow lying on the slopes to guarantee me not slipping and sliding over precipices, so I decided to just go to my exposure and do a bit more digging. This time I remembered to take along the camera, so I can show you a bit of the landscape and give you an impression of the digging activity. The first three pics are on the approach to the exposure. Can you guess where it is? A little hilly, eh?
  4. Whether the weather...

    It's been about a month now since I went on my last hunt, due to snow and cold weather. There's also nothing to do in the workshop since I finished up my last commision work a couple of weeks ago. All that was left was to do some dusting, so I was starting to get a bit depressed. The weather was warming up a bit, so I got in touch with a friend yesterday who lives close to the Wutach and he told me that the snow was pretty well gone for the time being. I grabbed the bull by the horns this morning, threw an extra spade into the car and took off to my favorite locality. On the way there it started to rain, which then turned into sleet, but I decided nevertheless to keep on going. It was still snowing a bit when I got there and in the woods the dampness was dripping from the trees, but it wasn't all that bad and I had packed myself up pretty good, so the dampness wasn't about to penetrate my protective clothing. The spade was for the cubic meter of overburden which I knew I was going to have to remove in order to expose the fossiliferous blocks I was hoping had a few nice surprises in store for me. I ended up slinging mud for about 3 hours before I could get to work on the blocks, and that took another 3 hours, 2 of which were in the dark with my headlamp on. Why does the sun go down so early in winter? Unfortunately nothing larger than 10cm. came out this time, but I'm pretty sure there are some nice ones there anyway. Here's the booty. Hope to get down to some serious prepping tomorrow.
  5. Old fossils

    I was cleaning my attic and happened upon a bag of fossils I once got as payment for shoveling a neighbors driveway. Any ideas as to what I got? I'll post multiple pictures of each, thanks for the help. And fair warning, they were given to me I have no idea what age or site they come from. I'll post the trilobite first.
