If you want dinosaur bones, piss off. You won’t find ‘em here (much), but Austin’s pretty geologically interesting if you ask me. The limestone that the city sits on is porous enough to create caves and aquifers, but it’s there because the whole area was underwater for a long time and not diverse enough to have sustained anything more than these crappy snails and oysters, at least at the fossil-record stratum that I poke around at. I still enjoy looking though. I’ve been fossil hunting since I was a wee bastard. Click on the pics for a pretty awesome close-up.
Please note my shitty car.
