Nephrtiti rock

We split the team today, me, Ryan, and his wife Tara going to prospect north of Green River.  Here the two are showing their excitement for finding fossils beneath Nephrtiti Rock.

The rocks we were in were deposited in ocean environments except for a small section.   Luckily in this small section we found a coal that contained a volcanic ash we will attempt to date the Neslen Formation.  Dating of these rocks has never been done so this date is really important.

Eventhough we did not really find fossils, we did find lots of cool homes and trails made by sea creatures such as shrimp.   Here is one example of the ancient homes.

Finally we finished the day with a beautiful sunset.
