Montana - Day 3

We were off to a great start this morning. The entire CFDC crew and a student from Scotland headed to the Triceratops site and began to plaster a field jacket of the skull. We reviewed the preliminaries and made a really good jacket. The jacket will be heading off to Philadelphia in the fall.

The afternoon was spent in the Garfield County Museum where we saw some marine reptile fossils from the Bear Paw Shale (the equivalent of the Pierre Shale in Morden) and of course lots of Triceratops material.

The evening was spent visiting the Hell Creek Bar, where scenes from Jurassic Park III were shot. It was amazing knowing so many paleontologists have visited this exact bar and sat where we were sitting.
