Lunch Time...

Unfortunately I didn't get the email which informed all that lunch was to be packed for the trail, unlike last trip up here where we hit a local fast food joint.   Many thanks Mike I. who graciously provided Army Rations to my friend Carl and myself.  Green Eggs and Ham!  Not bad actually.  Thanks Mike.

One of the interesting things about this area was found here, on the banks of this colorful lake.  Fossils from the age of dinosaurs, mainly plant life such as ferns were scattered all over this area.  We spent a little time here splitting pieces of shale, looking for nice specimens.
