Fossil Hike

A good friend of mine showed me a place here in WNY that is littered with marine fossils. You can find spirifer brachiopods, mollusks, and trilobites in hand fulls! The deposit runs along a creek. If it is a warm day we will creek walk to the site (there are dry paths as well, but that's no fun!). There is a large green field where we can picnic and just hang out! We will be carpooling from a centralized location since the spot is hard to find even with a map.

    I lost 1/2 a pound from the walk. I'll have to do this more often.

    Can you tell me where we are meeting or how I can get ahold of someone.

      From Alberto's email this morning:
      "Also let's meet on Meadow Drive near the Rugby field next to the Zoo. If you need help either getting there or are not sure where to meet, email me."

    Doesn't work with my schedule anymore. Sorry.

      I am sorry Marry. We will do this again. Will the weekend be better?

    Can you give a general idea of the location, or a guess when the trip might return, for those of us that need to be home by a certain time?

      It literally is in a neighborhood. Oh, and please don't set up a geocache there. I don't think very many people know about it, which is good. The less people the better. It will ruin it if more people know about it!

      Darn, always wanted to go to PennDixie. You don't need a permit, just $7 to get in and dig. Maybe another meet up.
      Don't worry, I won't plant a geocache there, but I'm sure there already are several nearby, if not right there.

    I don't own a car so everything depends on carpooling.

      We will be carpooling from Delaware park. Can you get to Delaware park?

    Does anyone want to meet earlier than 11AM?

    July 16, 2013

    • Lenore

      I can meet earlier

      July 17, 2013

    • Alberto V.

      Ok 9 will be great because it won't be so hot! I wondering if this is ok with Mary?

    Sadly work seems to get in the way of all my fun.

    This sounds scary: There's a large open field, you only take one car there, there's fossils and bones all over the place, it's not on any maps, it's at 1:15am. Do you allow cameras or are those taken away and burned along with our cell phones. I'm scared. :)

      You watch too much CSI... ;-P

      July 12, 2013

  • Lenore

    1:15 AM?

    July 11, 2013

    • Alberto V.

      ;P Just seeing if you are awake! ;P
