And now, let the fossil collecting begin!
The site we chose is a new series of road cuts in Kentucky
that expose mostly the Fairview Formation.
This site has an interesting "ball and piller"
layer, as seen below, that acts as a marker bed to Geologists in identifying
this layer on different sites across a wide area.
The road cuts had walls that were steeper than many Dry
Dredgers were used to, making it difficult to reach all parts of the site.
