Denny and I wandered around looking for fossils for twenty minutes not really noticing any. There was another group poking around so I asked to see what they were finding. The fossils they found are much smaller and subtle than we expected. After that, we found a few and were on our merry way. :)

Quick stop off to grab a handful of fossils on the way back to Payson from Young. Success!

This was geology fieldtrip for GLG 225 Invertebrate Paleontology at NAU. The first stop (along Highway 87/260, 3 miles south of Pine at the Control Road junction), is not listed in the hike description. A few brachipods were found (one guy found an awesome Spiriferoid), but mostly it was a vast amount of crinoid material. One of the grad students said he found a shark tooth at this locality previously.

The second stop was at the locality from the hike description. The photos show specimens from both localities, so I have noted in the captions "Pine Locality" if applicable. Hiking data reflects estimates combined from both localities.

My husband and I decided to try out our cameras and do a little bit of fossil hunting at the Famous Naco site... The really good site was paved over when they relayed out the road as destroying one of the only places we have found some rare echinoderms...
