Hi, all. I just returned from a trip to northern Michigan. My wife was kind enough to indulge my fossil-hunting hobby, and I collected specimens in four locations: at a state park in Rockport, a city park in Rogers City, the Lake Huron shoreline in Alpena, and a rare (in Michigan, at least) road cut along a state highway. Here are some of my findings. First is a large Petoskey stone, or Hexagonaria peraninata.

Here's a nice example of crinoid hash.

The first is not a fossil, but an inorganic limestone dissolution. The second are some road cut rocks with some nice brachiopods.

 This stone cracked when I picked it up. A nice surprise inside.

Nice finds. I particularly like your Hexagonaria. Just curious...you have your gender marked as female, but your "wife was kind enough to..." ? :headscratch:
