A lot more color than your normal photos. Any exceptional finds (other than piece of mind?)

Fossil hunting in the city? A view of Salt Lake City from the Gulch, Cephalopod Gulch on the GPS. A small Anasibirites kingianus. and the Anasibirites Bed, it looks surprisingly like the beds in the Confusion Range 150 miles to the southwest.

We couldn't find the outcrop that was supposed to be there, hiked all over with no luck.
