International Rock Flipping Day

Okay, I didn’t realize there were some rules for international rock flipping day until I started this post, but I did spend part of my day flipping rocks where my older brother and I used to spend hours when we were kids, in LaFayette, NY. I wasn’t disappointed. There were tons of fossils! What, you were expecting me to go out and try to find insects under rocks? Well, I did that, too, but there wasn’t anything too exciting going on under the big rocks I flipped. And for these fossils, I didn’t really”flip” rocks, I peeled rocks carefully back in layers to find the fossils.  Update:  Here’s a link to my I Love Fossils post I wrote last year.

I didn’t flip or peel any rocks back to find these next fossils, but I had to take photos of them anyway!
