We took today off, since temperatures in the Bighorn Basin were over 100 F today. Instead we drove through Wind River Canyon and visited the Wyoming Dinosaur Center. We planned to eat our lunch at one of the picnic benches in the canyon, but the swallows nesting over the tables deterred us.
Here is a goody from yesterday’s work that I forgot to post; J. B. and Hunter found this gastrolith while trenching around one of the bones:
Like birds, sauropod dinosaurs had gizzards for helping to grind food. The gizzard stones preserve quite well.
If all goes well, tomorrow should be our last day excavating.
