Day 2 Post Ernesto Fossil Hunting

After reading derik's forum post about the nearly religious dedication to the hunt he displayed, I became inspired. I can hardly wait to see the giant 6 inch monster megalodon he found. Anyway, I put on my weezil eyes and headed out to pick up the scraps that would undoubtedly be few in number. I unwittingly stumbled upon a pond just recently completed. Its edges were graded, so I couldn't dig. But I could walk. Almost immediately upon taking the field on the way to the pond, I was finding stuff. I couldn't believe I wasn't seeing any footprints. Admittedly, this place is back in the middle of nowhere, but I was sure someone else had seen the telltale signs of a dig from the highway. As I continued to circumnavigate the pond, I kept finding teeth and never did see another footprint. The hunt culminated in a megalodon just barely exposed in the edge of the layer. WHAT A DAY TO FORGET MY CAMERA!!!
