It has become a yearly tradition of mine to visit the upper part of Michigan's lower peninsula, around the Gaylord and Traverse Bay areas, for vacation with my family, and I often spend time looking for fossil in the area, mainly Hexagonaria/Petoskey stones, but for some reason they are far and few between. During my time in the area, I have also found a chunk of limestone containing what appears to be the glabella of a trilobite surrounded by what appears to be large, crystalized corals, possibly a Heliophyllum or similar rugose coral, a smaller piece of the same coral, and what seems to be the calyx and arms of a crinoid. Should I be looking anywhere in particular along the shores of Lake Michigan that aren't as well known as some of the popular tourist destinations? Also, are there any areas more inland that are accessible? (i.e. old quarries, roadcuts, etc.) Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!
