We have spent most of the fall close to home. We made a couple trips to the Tucson Mountains looking over some outcrops of the Amole Arkose formation. We encountered a few Bivalves and plant material. Fossils in the Amole are few and far between, but the fossils that are there are well preserved. As a side note, most of the Amole Arkose outcrops are on private property or inside the Tucson Mountain park, so if you go, plan on collecting pictures only :).

We're still planning a trip to the North Side of the Catalina Mountains to photograph a few fossils inside a Cave there. We're putting together the necessary equipment to spend an hour or two below ground. It will be early in 2006 probably.

We added a couple of new Wallpapers to our wallpapers page. Both from the beautiful Mexican town of Puerto Penasco, (AKA Rocky Point).
