[Moblog] Fossil Fields



Fathers Day hike at the Florissant Fossil Fields National Monument. J-man is standing by the "Scudder Pit", showing the rich sedimentary layers that formed some 34 million years ago when the Guffey Volcano Fields (once dominating the skyline, even dwarfing the Pikes Peak Massif) erupted à la Mount St. Helens-style and covered Lake Florissant with ash.

This region used to be home to giant redwoods; today all that's left are their petrified stumps.
