Thank you, Roger and Mike...I hauled my finds back to the truck in that nifty stroller.  :)

You got some great shots of Chickaroo, especially the one ("scoring") where she is holding up an ammonite.  That one is a classic.  Oh, and some of those ammonites are pretty fine too!

Thank you, Don. It has been great to have her out in the field with me...her ability to find beauty in the simplest of rocks is fun to watch. She talked about that ammonite all afternoon. :)

Chickaroo and I hit the Puerco on Sunday. I think this...

...is her favorite part of the adventure. :)

 

Our first find...

....was interesting...a good lesson in skeletal anatomy.

 

We reached the outcrop and started finding fossils immediately. I scored...

...just a great day with beautiful views.

 

Up the slope were a few more treasures...

...and down the slope was a darn good time. :D

With our goodies tightly packed, we made our way back to the truck. We found this broken up Tragodesmoceras...

...in a gully on our way out. I need to find one of these beasts intact!

 

As we putted along the dirt road, Chicken asked about badlands again. I stopped at some Jurrasic outcrops so she could see them first hand...

...no dinosaur bones this time...maybe on the next trip. :)

 

I hope you all have amazing adventures...

...as always, happy hunting!

Great report Mike!

Love seeing the scenery, the finds, and the family!

Nothing beats family fossil frolics!  :)

Thank you, Tim!  You are correct, there is nothing quite like it. Getting to share these adventures with my kid is a blessing...I probably have the biggest snail eating grin all day just watching her roam the slopes. She may not always be as excited about fossils as she is now so I am going to enjoy every moment while I can.

I guess Chickaroo has a bit of an advantage in that she's a bit closer to the ground?

 

I especially like that first ammonite, is it a Coilopoceras

Plus she knows where the good sites are. ;)

Yes, the first two specimens are C. springeri.
