Sunday Deer Park

Recommended Posts

Ok so I took advantage of the day yesterday and went to Deer Park. I drove up to what used to be Michael's, and walked inside, asked for permission to hunt behind the building and they had no issue with it. So I walked out behind and to the left of the lot. looked down and instantly started finding fossils. I collected about 10 lbs. before my bag started getting heavy on my stitched up finger. at this point I started gathering smaller ones in my pockets. in about 2 hours I had quite a large collection going.

stay tuned for pics.

I read your info on my smartphone while I was in the vicinity. I would still like to make it to St. Clair. I am hoping to do so soon.

post-8290-0-01597500-1364359988_thumb.jpg Thought this was pretty interesting, It appears to be an open "clamshell"

If anyone can identify a particular fossil, its greatly appreciated as I dont have my normal reference material at my disposal.

Rob,

This one looks like a Mucrospirifer - maybe M. mucronatus.

Thank you Tim for letting me know from whence the fossil were collected. I think we had a thread awhile back about at least putting in the state and avoid generic names :)
