This trip (last weekend) was long overdue, I haven't been to the San Juan Basin in months.

 

I love ammonites, but I snargin' love dinosaurs. Just wanted to share some photos.

 

Hadrosaurine...

Very cool finds. Weekends are my days away to enjoy quite time and hunt as well.

Fossils are simply one of the coolest things on earth--discovering them is just marvelous! Makes you all giddy inside!

Wow. I would give my right.... well, big toe, to find dino material!

I spent a week in Montana, and outside some of the nicest ammonites I've ever found, the dino material was quite sad.

I ended up with one weathered dino tail vert, a 2ft square of busted up Triceriptopsian frill, a turtle vert, and about 2" of the end of a hadrosaur tibia. Not very good for 48 hours of driving, and a week of hunting.

I'd be dancing on the ceiling if I found these specimens!!

Congratulations!

:wub:

Thank you. It was a great weekend (better than some others). Regardless, fossil hunting is good therapy. :)
