Lake Worth

This was a few weeks ago when I found all this.  I stopped after work with a few hours of daylight left.  I was in search of ammonites and when your looking for something its hard to find.  The first place I checked.  I went back to the top of the hill to check some spots.  When I started down the first trail not 30 feet down was a huge Eopachydiscus ammonite.  Its about 18 inches across, but one side has some damage.  Still a cool find. I got that one chipped out of the limestone and started to look around again, about 5 feet down from the other was a smaller one.  This one took a bunch of chipping and breaking to get out, once out I noticed the spine of another ammonite just below the one I broke out all in the same stone.
