    Fall in the Pahvant Range, Camp at sundown, a fair Ammonoid, and a squirrel packed with acorns.

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

    A little night walk netted a spider down it's hole, a Black Widow in another, and a Kangaroo Rat.

    Arnaud and Richard admiring a spider during the day, just below the small Yucca. A closeup of the spider :shock:. A Scorpion. And a Rattlesnake. A good year for critters :sly:.

    The Ranch in Northeastern Nevada. Trying to hide Camp from the cold North Wind behind the Haystacks. Throwing in the Hammers. And a pair of Sandhill Cranes.

    What is the significance of "throwing in the hammers"? Time to go home?

    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.

    Now that you mention it, it seems alot more colorful in pictures. Nothing exceptional this year :sad:

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

    It sounds like the wrong place was named Confusion Range
