So there I am a couple of miles out in the middle of the desert walking along and I noticed the strange looking rock by my foot. You can see my footprint. I had already picked up the "rock" and once realizing what I had replaced it for this photo documentation.
There I had in my hand was a fossilized vertebrae of some long ago prehistoric animal. I have found fossilized bone fragments before in all my years but never a complete intact unbroken bone like this. This truly is the best fossil I have ever found.
Yes, I know the difference between bone and fossilized bone.
Okay, my life now is complete. Lord take me anytime you wish. Oh wait.
I still would like to find that gun or rifle lost by a cowboy or prospector long ago.
Hold off on that calling a little longer if you will.
