1/2011 GMR trip, not exactly kid friendly.Well we made our first trip to GMR last weekend. It was interesting to say the least. We had to enter the river on the other side of the 10th street bridge. Walked right down thru the folks backyard I guess. I didn't realize that entering at the elm street park bridge would be so difficult with a woman and 2 children. We brought a 1/2" screen down to the stream and had some nice finds right where the water comes out of the tunnel under the 10th street bridge. But, i'm assuming there's much better places to search. It was nice there because there was an area on the bank for the kids to stand. I saw a place that i could have carried the kids to further down river but they were done fossil hunting for the day. We made this stop on our way home, so i was okay with leaving. We had some nice finds, including a broken great white, and what I think is a croc tooth. Maybe we should make our way a little further downstream next time.
