I’ve been trapped in the museum most of the time over the past two weeks working on a new fluorescent mineral display for the museum. However, I did manage to sneak away last Wednesday April 22nd.
Bill and I and Sage explored a road we found our last time out. It’s east of Clawson and winds around in the Cedar Mountain and Morrison formations. I believe we found the northern edge of the Mussentuchit member of the Cedar Mountain Formation. The Ruby Ranch member is becoming quite thick in this area.
For the first time, we found a flock of turkeys on one of the highest points in the area. I had never seen wild turkeys in the desert before and thought they lived in wetter climates. But there they were watching us drive along. So, of course, I had to take some pictures.
And here’s some more spring flowers.
Hopefully, this turkey will be able to escape to the wilds soon.
