Wonderful trip to the South Ram River in between camping and kayaking. While the rest of the group went to see Ram River Falls I elected to check my favourite spot for any scaphites that may have popped up since my last visit a couple years ago. Lucky day.

The one in the photo on the middle right we call a 'squishy' because it is complete yet so compressed. :)

Well, that's a pretty sweet find. Not certain if it is scaphites depresses, but likely.

'squishy' --- I Iike that name! Gorgeous ebony coloured Scaphites, with very prominent growth lines. Nice finds, and awesome looking location, very jealous! :(

Those are great scaphites! I'll be hunting the Kaskapau FM this year which I believe to be from the same group as the puskwaskua FM. I'll have to keep my eye out!

Will you be on the Smoky?

Not the smoky river no. I'll be working creeks closer to Chetwynd/Tumbler. Although the Smoky/GP isn't far, I have never spent any time exploring the area.

If you have a boat, I can direct you to a great location on the Smoky downstream from River Stone golf & campground. The Pouce Coupe river has some good spots too.
