Lake Huron shoreline was very low... what was underwater was now exposed with +100 ft shore line so this is what I found this from a 5 minute walk....

Collected on Nov 4, 2012.

Very nice find Peter. Looks like the stuff they find in the New Albany shale down in Kentucky!

Thanks Dave! It was just luck.... I have never see Lake Huron so low.... lots of black shale exposed that was normally underwater... the plant reminds me of bamboo with the multiple segmentations...
