The Great Outdoors
Fossils On An Alien World:
When I lived in Los Angeles I loved to go rock climbing and camping in the
Chatsworth hills North of the city. There I saw many
familiar rock formations, many of the planetary
scenes from old Star Trek were shot there.
When I was fifteen we used to dig fossils up there.
As we cleaned a specimen with pool acid you
might hear me say...
"Wow!.. It's an archaeopteryx!, It's an archaeopteryx....
It's an archaeopteryx??.......um, It's a cat."
Oh well, not much Cretaceous rock
in the North Valley I guess.
I am looking forward to exploring more of what
the Bay area has to offer.
