Rocking Out in GMNP

Great blog post by the American Geophysical Union of their hike in Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
"While in West Texas over spring break, the “Border to Beltway” students took a hike up McKittrick Canyon, in Guadalupe Mountains National Park.We were hiking in the forereef deposits of the Bell Canyon Formation.
Reefs are geologic structures built by living organisms, so you won’t be shocked to learn that there were plenty of fossils to be seen, though mostly as a hash of bits and pieces, occasionally as whole body fossils."
