My daughter found this seed pod Sunday at the John Day Fossil beds in Oregon.  Pretty cool.  Found a lot of seeds by themselves but this one is the actual pod.  Just thought I would share it.

That's great!  We were pretty excited when she found it.

Great find! :) :dinothumb: I'm not sure entirely how uncommon these are, but from my experience hunting this formation, seems like there's an awful lot of metasequoia and partial leaves and much of anything else is a bit sparse.
