Wyoming Day 13

With hot temperatures and high winds that twice blew our tarp away, we had a fairly short day today so there’s not a lot to report. We successfully flipped the long bone that we top-jacketed yesterday (above). We’ve now turned our attention the the last few vertebrae.

Tomorrow will probably be our last day on site. We’ll make the bottom jacket on our long bone, remove whatever remaining bone we can and put winter jackets over anything else that’s exposed, and then clean up the site and backfill the pit (shutting down a pit takes the better part of a day).
