The View from the North (a quarry is born!)

After moving to the Crystal Geyser Quarry, we had to set up a new base camp. The colored hills of the Late Jurassic Morrison Formation are a welcome addition crowning our new base camp.

The crew hikes down from the quarry to base camp #2

The next step?   Digging a big, big hole in the north side of the hill to search for Falcarius (a feathered dinosaur) bones.

After a day of picking and shoveling we have ourselves a respectable dent in the hillside and the crew takes a much deserved siesta.

Would you look here… we have ourselves a dinosaur quarry.
Paul and Alex. Have I worked them too hard?
