I stumbled around for an hour or so looking for them, then spent almost as much time getting a decent enough angle with good light. It was close to midday and a very sunny day.

I found an earth bone on a cinder cone.

It sparkled.

That's not a bone that shone, as you should have known it's a stone you've shown that from the cone was blown. (groan - moan).

Chiricahua National Monument. Stone columns, called hoodoos, are the most common formation in the monument.

When we were at Chiricahua we were hit by a ferocious thunderstorm. Our rental car, the only vehicle in the parking lot at that lookout, was rocking from the wind. Our daughter was terrified.

Do I need to identify this rock? One road sign gives some scale.

I lived a couple years amongst the Sky Islands (Fort Huachuca), and the Chiricahuas were a favored respite.

Glad that this joint between Earth's bones didn't move while M was in there. Hey M! Push harder, see if it will roll.

Not exactly Earth's bones...but certainly Earth's exoskeletons!... Walnut Creek Park, Austin Texas.

Ammonite is, I think, Cretaceous in that area. As are the clams/mussels(?). Ammonite is dinner plate size.

Interestingly, this is where I also found a Pentaxian with a K-7 from California. 2 great finds!
