This is not an important fossil — there is not enough preserved to put a name on it beyond Family Goniasteridae Forbes, 1841 (thanks, Dan Blake) — but it was a fun one to find. It also photographs well. This is a ray fragment of an [...]

The Grand Canyon is one of the great spectacles of the Earth. Millions of people every year stand on the edge of the abyss and peer in, taking in the vivid colors and hidden depths. Tens of thousands venture down some of the few trails that reach [...]

A very busy month for cottonwoods

Another month has passed, and it’s time for all tree-followers to report on their chosen tree.  For my cottonwood, this may be the newsiest report of the year -- so many changes!  It’s hard to believe it looked like this less than a [...]
