Scotia Bluffs!

...for our Sunday/Monday drive. The lady who runs the rock and gem museum near the Alton interchange told Greg about it when he stopped in to have a look. Armed with a rudimentary map and plenty of tangerines we set off for the wilds of Lumberland!

I put my mind into Mexico Mode and after a few passes at where the hole in the fence should've been, found it and parked. We walked down the abandoned railroad tracks to the bluffs, past the boys throwing rocks and pampas grass spears in the river. The dirt was super-slick from the rains, so we didn't go far, just enough to find some fossilized clams and snails. But I think once it's dried out a bit we'll make a day of it.
