Description:
This will be a two-day trip (September 9 and 10) to two disparate areas beginning near Evanston, Wyoming at a Cretaceous marine site discovered by the field trip leader, Joe Dabelko, over 30 years ago. This resulted in a 2012 field trip. There should also be a stop at two other related sites for similar material including three different species of the genus Elmia gastropods (snails). At one of these sites, the fossils are translucent. The second day is for the Delaney Rim, an Eocene site relatively close to Wamsutter, WY. Black agate Turitella gastropods and gorgeous stromatolites are only 7/10 of a mile apart on the same road. A third site in this area may be explored. More information will be made available to participants as the dates approach. Field Trip Leader: Joe Dabelko Assistant Leader: Nancy Kimber Number of participants allowed: 24 Difficulty level - only about a 2. Most roads are traversible by car, though high ground clearance can occasionally be useful. No hills to climb. Altitude keeps temperatures reasonable, though this is the Red Desert - bring plenty of water. Facilities recommended...Little America Hotel near Evanston. More inf. as available.
