Very Old Fossils

Our area of New York state, the finger lakes, has no dinosaur fossils because the rocks that have dinosaurs embedded in them have all been worn away.  The fossils in New York state are very old.   In fact the oldest fossil tree is from the Naples, NY area.  Today I hiked in a gully and brought home two very cool stones.  One is a fossilized mud slide and the other is of bamboo, I believe.  If anyone would like to dispute this that is fine.  Let me know.  It could be an ancient form of the horse tail plant.  In the middle Devonian period they were 50 to 90 feet tall.




The forrest was beautiful this morning.  There were a few other hikers out there, a family with a North Carolina license plate and another group with a big dog.
