Hematized inarticulate brachiopod from the dark flysch-like material also present at the site, it’s a lot sparser. Didn’t come home (sorry to you brachiopod lovers)

Very worn and very large Isotelus pygidium, too big of a rock to take back.

Lastly, a (very cropped so it can fit) picture of a portion of the site to give an idea of what fossil hunting there is like.

Hurrah! My trilobite IDing skills are a bit shoddy, so I’ll take that little victory!

You’re doing just fine. :) I can only imagine how this trip would be if it was longer with some tools!

Very nice finds for a short stop! 

 

It’s good to hear that your parents support your hobby. Even if it did take some convincing. ;)

Thanks! My parents are extremely supportive, and I owe much thanks to them for being so. But sometimes a little nudge is necessary to keep them that way:D
