Says 105 – Fossils – “Digging up bones”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I went for a walk by the local lake and decided to explore a small stream bed, littered with stones and pebbles. The water level of the lake had been dropped in preparation for the coming winter and spring run-off, now exposing what had been hidden underwater. I hadn’t walked five steps when I saw my first fossil, the honeycomb, and a couple of minutes later I found a piece of petrified wood. After about fifteen minutes, I had two pockets full of fossils, some actual the fossilized animal or plant, and others just their imprints.
