Photos from the Niagara Gorge trail at Artpark in Lewiston, NY:
First, we have a shot of some load casts.
Next, on the now-vertical "under"side of a boulder (which was facing outward at the very edge of a steep dropoff on the edge of the trail, wheeeee) is a whole buttload of arthrophycus trace fossils. (That's worm burrows, that is.)
While we're at it, have some ripple marks too.
Uh... nature iz pretty. :B
Orthocone nautiloid with some of the siphuncle preserved.
Some shots further up the river, not at Artpark:
Dr. Carlton Brett (who lead the field trip) is in this shot (taken near the power outlook on the NY side of the river) for scale. I like the cross-bedding. :)
Can you spot the stromatolites in the rocks? There's also thrombolites in there but I'm very un-knoledgeable about those. :|
Churning rapids in the whirlpool of the Niagara River. Turns out the whirlpool is there because there was a filled-in gorge that existed previously, leaving softer material that was more easily eroded, forming a kink in the Niagara River.
And finally, we have a black squirrel, because squirrels are infinitely excellent. Woot!
