Had a great day hunting for marine fossils up near Glendive, Montana. We searched for round rocks that had hidden treasures in them. You break a few and sometimes get lucky and find neat shell fossils. If anyone doubts that an interior seaway existed out west here’s the proof-

These two photos show a true nautilus shell that is extinct. It’s approx. 67 million years old.

And it was hot! Just felt kind of still and dry and we were in the Fox Hills Formation that consists of dark soils, so it felt hot. Jason & I both found some things and had a good day.

Looks like the only shade I could find was behind this little cedar tree!

We visited a friend near Glendive then hit the local ice cream shop before heading back to camp.
