Hell Creek Day 1 

After two weeks of prospecting and finding only a handful of localities in New Mexico, it was a joy to spend a day poking around the bountiful Hell Creek. Of course in New Mexico anything we found was likely to be new, here in the Hell Creek much more of the ancient fauna is already described.

Mary Schweitzer and I found bone within the first half hour and by the end of the day had run across bone at almost ever turn. I spent the morning checking out a fair weather turtle.

time for a break. might as well sit here and explore

The afternoon we dug on a duckbill dinosaur site that Mary found with good success. I hauled a vert up the hill, but with only a surface permit, the rest will have to wait!
