Tuesday; work continued in earnest at the Hanksville-Burpee Quarry. Several new bones were found in a short time before we were chased out by a late spring thunderstorm. Fortunately we made it out of the field before our vehicle got mired in the mud.
With time to spare, we decided to visit one of the best attractions in Utah, Arches National Park. The park sits at the bottom of the LaSal Moutain Range and I must admit this has become one of my favorite parks right behind Yellowstone. Several formations are present in the park, but two are the most prominent; Navajo and Entrada. Most of the arches form from the weathering of the Entrada sandstones. If you ever get to Moab you need to visit. Despite the rain, we were productive and saw what Utah has to offer.
