New Mexico Adventures – Fossil Hunting

It was my first time searching for fossils in New Mexico and it was surprisingly rewarding. I had always thought of fossils as being dug up and difficult to come across. Our hunt required no digging. We followed the advice of fossil enthusiasts towards high concentrations of limestone. We did not find dinosaur fossils but we did find a plethora of shell fossils in material that once was a part of the ocean floor millions of years ago. Pretty magical it was.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
