Summer Scenes from the Petrified Forest

Well another summer field season has come and gone at the Petrified Forest. The student interns left at the end of last week and hopefully they enjoyed themselves and learned a lot. Jeff and I will continue fieldwork through the end of the year, but I wanted to share a few scenic photos from this past summer to emphasize once again what a beautiful field area we have.
The Blue Mesa/Sonsela Member contact at "Phytosaur Basin" in the Blue Forest.

Prospecting some of the Blue Mesa Member badlands in the Blue Forest.

Great exposures of the Sonsela Member at "the Pennisula".


Jeff in the Blue Mesa badlands.

A spectacular sandstone outcrop in the Painted Desert.
Have a great week.
