Today was a blustery day along Griggs Reservoir. As we walked the eastern shore one Bluebird was brave enough to show it’s face. Other than that, the birds seemed to be hunkered down and most of the colorful leaves from a few days before were gone.
While I was enjoying the wind as it blew through the trees trying to dislodge the few remaining leaves, my wife was taking a close look at the rocks along the shore.
The area around Griggs is composed largely is shale with what appear to be granite erratic’s littered throughout the park. I don’t know if I would consider Griggs to be a fossil hunting hot spot but we sure enjoyed looking for them today. Now we need to spend some time understanding what it was we were looking at. Other than the blowing leaves pic, my wife was kind enough to provide all the pictures for this post.
Looking at the fossils and contemplating the work of plate tectonics one couldn’t help but wonder where in the world these fossilized creatures were when they were alive. Thanks for stopping by.
