The camp is set up and the dig location is tarped and ready for removal of our sauropod deposit. The next few days will be shovels and filled buckets . A few bones can be seen exposed already like this radius; if you look closely to the right you can see a small round stone we believe to be a gastrolith in-situ. This means that the bone and the small pebble were deposited at the same time, Gastroliths are believed to help some kinds of dinosaurs digest food like birds do today.

for checking in..
