Marmarth arrival!

            We’ve finally arrived in Marmarth!  Now that our eight person team has settled into the cozy cottage and surrounding tents, we’re getting to bed for an early start.  Tomorrow we’ll spend the day prospecting for fossils and getting to know our new territory! Hopefully, we’ll find many Cretaceous reptiles such as turtles, dinosaurs and crocodiles. If we’re lucky, we might stumble upon our dream fossil site: a group of pachycephalosaurs who were herded together by vicious and hungry turtles. We’ll assume that the turtles eventually died from over-eating. In addition to these fossils, we hope to find a t-rex that died in a flash flood while feeding on the massive carnage.
