What better place to visit for a budding Paleontologist but a Fossil Gorge?  Princess Nagger enjoyed our little excursion to the Devonian Fossil Gorge:

With our expert fossil aficionado in the lead, we were sure to find some excellent fossils:

She took great delight in pointing out specific fossils:

Surveying her domain:

Here’s something interesting:

Bet you didn’t think looking at rocks and fossils could be so exciting, did you?

  1. What a wonderful excursion…so educational and interesting to us visitors today. I must add, I’m in awe of her long flowing, gorgeous, blond hair!!!

    Thanks for visiting with me today.

  2. How exciting! Looks like she had a great time. Almost 2 years ago now we went to the Messel Fossil Pit (near Frankfurt, Germany) with the local homeschool group. It was a great trip. We found out later that they offer a 2 hour tour where you actually get to pull apart the shale and look for fossils. We hoped to go back and do that, but haven’t found the time yet. You can see (and show PN) my blog post about the trip here:

  3. Stacy, this is totally intersting! My kids would get along with your daughter very much! They love dinosaurs and fossils!
    Have a wonderful WW!

  4. I’m loving these posts. I’m taking a little “webcation” with you each day.

    Told PB about the mis-hap at Antiques Archeology and he was disappointed, too. It would have been great to see inside!

  5. I didn’t know there were fossils in Iowa…come to think of it, I know nothing about Iowa, so your vacation wrap ups are great inspiration for me to travel west of Buffalo!

  6. This place looks like so much fun! She looks like she really enjoyed herself!! 🙂

  7. Hey Stacy,
    It’s so cool that your daughter is into paleontology. I hope when my little sweetheart grows up she’s pretty and intelligent like your little girl!

  8. My oldest would love to explore and see all those fossils. Mine would probably prefer to end up a geologist than paleontologist but to me rocks are rocks. LOL – I am sorry to those professions 🙂 Fun day and I love how much fun your daughter had 🙂
