It sure does pay off sometimes to be close to the source! That Cymatoceras is going to be a stunner and congrats on that complete Turrilites!

Great job, Kevin and Natalie!!!  The echinoids are great, but the nautiloid and heteromorph ammonite are fantastic!!!  Do I sense a "Fossil of the Month" entry or two??? :zzzzscratchchin::)

Wow, some really nice finds and great prep work as well.  It looks like a beautiful place to hunt fossils, especially on dryer, sunny days.  Sounds like Natalie is your lucky "rabbit foot", she made some wonderful finds.  Did your friends find some fossils as well?  Hope they enjoyed their first hunting trip.

Yes, our friends did find quite a few fossils to, mostly ammonites , but also some fossil sponges, brachiopods and Inoceramus shells.

I'll see if they can send me some pictures of their finds this week, I'll make sure to post them

Great!  I'm too old to go on field trips so I really enjoy looking at photos from others.  Thanks for posting them.

What a delightful hunt, the storm really rewarded you guys for your initiative. The Hypoturrilltes is simply spectacular and I love the color on the Cymatoceras as well.

Nice! Just a little bit of putty in that gap on the Cymatoceras should do the trick.

Ruger, those are a few pictures of the fossils our friends found, but they still need to prep some:

Bet they were pleased with the results of their first fossil hunting trip.  Some nice finds that will clean up nicely.  Are they going to start practicing their prepping skills as well?
