Home at last
After three days of driving, we arrived back in Cincinnati last night around 10 pm. We visited Don Esker (a multi year volunteer and former Graduate Student of Dr. Storrs) at the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, SD. The only problem along the way home was a single flat tire on the trailer that was quickly changed and we were back on our way. It was a successful dig season with over 150 specimens brought home. This includes several large limb bones, teeth, and many vertebra. I would like to thank the crew (Lamont, Dale, and Mike) and Dr. Storrs' children (William and Olivia) who all took time out of their summer to help at the site. Today, we unloaded the gear and fossils; ending the 12th field season.
