Hello Everyone!

If you haven't noticed, Ive been going out to the river pretty much every day this week. Work's been slow, so I've had the afternoons free for exploring. I decided to mix it up today and head out to a site that I explored extensively last month. Most of the gravel and fossils at this site comes out tan or reddish in color, as apposed to the blacks and greys common at the other site I've been to recently.

The finds came slowly today, most of the productive areas were covered with a fine layer of silt. I did manage to find one nice angustidens tooth, as well as a shamer of another, larger tooth. I also found a cool dolphin jaw segment, and several nice Hemipristis teeth.

I might wait until another good rain before I return to this particular site, but I had fun today anyway.

Take care,

SOSC
