Thanks, Don - today has pretty much made my whole summer!  And perhaps fall, winter, and spring, too! :D

Congratulations, Monica! Perseverance finally pays off! Your eyes are getting better and the right portion of luck cut in as well. You definitely should try to follow that horizon where the trilobite was. Maybe there are a few more in there.

Thanks, Roger!!!   I will admit that after I found the trilobite, I scanned the same level in the rock wall for as far as I could go, but no other trilobites were to be seen.  But now that I know for sure that they're there, I'll definitely keep looking!!!

I think I may never tell Viola about my outing and finds from yesterday - I think I'll just put them in my display cabinets and never mention it to her... :ninja:

Or, perhaps I should tell her because it'll probably light a fire that won't stop until she finds something equally amazing, which is good news for me since that would mean more fossil-hunting outings! :dinothumb:

Oh, I was bubbling - I couldn't believe it when I saw it!!!  And as much as I love that trilobite, I think I love the nautiloid more!

Thanks, Al!  I do feel as though I paid my dues, and yesterday was just my day to find exactly what I've been looking for for 3 years - I still feel amazing this morning!!!

Tony, when I saw the nautiloid revealed after removing a layer of rock, I think that's exactly what I did, too! :P

Hey Ralph - thanks for chiming in!  Unfortunately, I'm not going back today - today I'm going out to pick raspberries so I can freeze some for smoothies and make some jam for my husband and son.  I already took all that was visible of the nautiloid, though - I have the two pieces that splintered off of the main specimen, revealing the crystals underneath, so I may look into getting it properly prepped so those pieces can be re-attached and look nice - we'll see...
