Nimravis posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI decided to leave at 5 am on Friday to head down to a roadcut that I read about that was located in Maysville, Kentucky. I knew that it was at the right off of AA Highway so I decided to grab a hotel in Wilder, Kentucky which seems to be the start of the roadcuts that are on AA Highway. After 5 hours of driving I was in Wilder and started down AA Highway knowing that I might stop at a couple roadcuts prior to hitting the big one in Maysville. Believe it or not, if you count all of the roadcuts that are on the 41 mile drive from Wilder to the turn off for Maysville you will pass, if my counting is correct 120 places to collect. Now I counted each side as a separate roadcut since sometimes I find different things on each side. This will be a picture heavy post since I stopped at Maysville twice, plus 8 other roadcuts on AA Highway and on the way home Sunday I spent about 5 hours at St. Leon, Indiana. I will be identifying the locations using the name that is associated with the pictures that I took with my I-Phone, not sure if the cities / towns are correct, but besides Maysville and St. Leon, all of the stops were on AA Highway. Stop 1 was at a roadcut in Melbourne, Kentucky. Like most of the places that collected at in Kentucky it has a heavy concentration of bryozoan, there were also trace fossils and Trilo-bits. Here are a couple pics of what can be found here. Trace Fossils- Hash plate with Flexicalymeme Trilo-bits- Bryozoans- Stop 2 was at another roadcut in Melbourne. This site I found the bivale Ambonychia. Bryozans- Hash plates with Hebertella brachiopods and Isotelus trilo-bits. Orthoconic nautiloids- Other Trilo-bits of Flexicalymene. Stop 2 Trace fossils to follow-
