Trip Log: Thursday, July
Above: Pat, Pam and Phil make sure they
have all the fossils they documented for the day.
Below: Kevin and Lizzie having lots of fun doing dishes.
Things that happened:
- It was cold, rainy in the morning, and miserable.
- A day off would have been nice.
- Some visitors arrived by plane, but flew too close to the bluffs. Not good for the Peregrines.
- Gary and George, teachers from Fairbanks, joined us.
- Interesting finds:
- Quarry 4: Judy found a beautiful scapula.
- Quarry 3: Pam found a chevron (bone on ventral
side of centrum), which looks like a wishbone. Holly found a “finger”
and was very proud of it.
- Quarry 2: Still arguing over what their name
should be. Uncovered yet another ischium (hip bone) to go with the
one they found yesterday. Janet found her first tooth, and then
her second and third.
- Quarry 1: “Oh no! Another bone!”
We learned to jacket our fibulas and humerus.
- Dinner was served by Rena and Holly: potato au gratin, creamy potato
soup, fruit salad.
- We were too tired and almost everyone returned to their tents by
- Overall, we were tired, cold, and achy.
Reporters for the day: Peg and Phelana—tired,
cold, and achy.
