I was informed by a friend that the fossil in the previous post was a Crinoid, a marine creature dating to the mid to late Paleozoic era (300 to 360 million years ago). I got to thinking about an odd looking pile of fossils I had seen last year not too far away. I went back today to get a shot of that group and decided that they must be the same type Crinoids. This site must have been a low area where hundreds of these fossils were deposited by running water. Virtually every “stone” you see in this picture is a fossil.
