GMS Field Trip
Ordovician Fossils and Geodes
Sunday, May 20, 2018

Once again I was not there to enjoy another fun GMS field trip; however, Robert Spinks, Rose To, and Teresa Curl graciously took some photos. As Charles reports, it was a well-attended trip and there were a lot of interesting finds. Heat earlier in the day encouraged some swift collecting at the first site and rain cancelled the third site, but the second site was fun and productive. Among the specimens collected were lots of little brachiopods, a beautiful nautiloid, some superb crinoid fossils, a gorgeous fossilized coral, and, as always, several pretty geodes. Many thanks to the property owners for allowing us to visit these great sites, and many thanks to Charles for arranging another fun trip.
