Ooo, very nice hash plates. Prep on the first one is superb.

Man I need to get up to the AA and hunt! There is some good stuff up that way. Awesome plates! I love the first one that’s filled with branching bryozoan pieces. Most of the bryozoan I find down here are encrusting or fenestrate. Great finds and thanks for sharing. :)

My guess is there's a lot of sober drivers on that stretch of road.  :heartylaugh:

It has twelve segments of fossil recovery.

The top piece is dominated by different bryozoan species and large strophomenid brachiopods with a few orthids and stem segments of what could well be Cincinnaticrinus. 

The second piece has more bryozoans but an orthid dominated fauna. 

The bryozoan with 'lumps' on is Parvohallopora ramosa (if they're sharp edged monticules) or subnodosa (if they're rounded). 

Upper Ordovician and very nice, thanks for sharing.:)

Thanks for the ID's, @Tidgy's Dad!
