A new paleo blog!

There is a new paleo blog on the block - Jurassic Journeys by Dr. Matt Bonnan - who stopped by the museum today with some of his former and current students on their way to the Hanksville-Burpee quarry in Utah. It was nice to show them around our collections and have a chance to talk with everyone. Sounds like they are off to another great start at the HBQ. You can find out more about the dig in this video:

On a related note, we began opening the Mygatt-Moore Quarry today and will be back out in the field tomorrow (if we can get the rain to knock it off). Our first official day of work is a week from today! It will be here before we know it!

Hey there:

Thanks for posting a link to the Jurassic Journeys website. You and John are always great to visit, and as always the students got a lot out of the experience.

It was something else seeing my old stomping ground the Mygatt-Moore quarry again!

Hi Matt,

No worries. I have enjoyed reading about your trip! We are really glad you were able to stop by again this year!

Hope you had fun at Mygatt-Moor! It was a hot day out there today!!
