Photos from Buffalo Geological Society Trip on July 27, 2016- Buffalo, NY

Photos from Buffalo Geological Society Trip on July 27 to Almond, NY to hunt for sponges.

We were working in the  Canaseraga Sandstone-Caneadea Shale which is a part of the Upper Devonian Machias Formation.  Our group included Craig Posmantur, Joe Sullivan, George Schwartzott, Walt Drabek, Jerry Bastedo and Paul Leuchner.  Fossils of Sea Pens (Plumalina plumaria Hall, 1858) were found along with a few Glass Sponges (Clathospongiasp.).

A group photo is attached.  Shown in the group from left to right is  Paul Leuchner, Walt Drabek, George Schwartzott, Joe Sullivan and Craig Posmantur (photo by Jerry Bastedo).  In the second photo Walt Drabek and Joe Sullivan are marveling over a Sea Pens they had just unearthed (photo by Paul Leuchner).

Dinos from the ROM Plus ChiHuly Exhibit and Lawren Harris

More photos from the trip to Toronto with photos of the ROM’s dinosaur exhibit (awesome) and the Chihuly glass sculpture display and the Lawren Harris exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Minerals from the Royal Ontario Museum on July 9, 2016

Given that is too hot to hunt, a trip to the ROM to explore their mineral collection seemed appropriate, plus take in the Chihuly glass exhibit and then visit the Art Gallery of Ontario for the Lawren Harris exhibit. Here are some photos to share.
