something old . . .

While we were hiking in the Arctic, we found
this fossil of a sea creature from long ago.
A guide told us that the fjord we were in had been
formed about 65 million years ago and we were 
standing on what had once been the bottom
of a huge deep glacier.  We followed
the rules (leave nothing, take nothing)
and left it just where we found it.

[Linking back to Macro Monday.]


  1. One of my favorite things, fossil rocks!

  2. I was not entirely surprised to find that carbon dating has conclusively proven that several dust bunnies under my bed actually predate the fossils being held in your photo above. Must do housecleaning some day.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
