Final field day in the Book Cliffs

Well, today was our last day in the field for the 2012 season.   It started out with us looking in rocks east of Green River, finding nothing all morning.   by lunch time i had climbed around four hundred feet up. Can you spot our field vehicle?

After lunch we moved locations and I found a series of bones sticking out of a cliff. The largest bone was the shaft of a limb nine from an herbivorous dinosaur. We don’t know which kind yet, but given the awesome preservation we are in for something nice…I hope!!

The questions that have formed in my mind while walking around these steep badlands have greatly outnumbered those answered. But that is the sign of a rich, fertile research project. I can’t wait to get back.
