In the first week of September 2019, the RELLA'S CAMBRIAN DREAM team met, climbed & experienced the fossil deposits in Yoho National Park, BC: Mount Stephen Trilobite Beds and The Burgess Shale! (Thanks, Canada Council, Thanks URGC, Thanks to all our friends!)
First: Mount Stephen. We climbed and climbed and climbed and climbed for hours, up, up into the clouds ...
The Trilobite Beds! For me (your blogger) a dream come true.
Two days later. Rested & re-energized, we took the longer, higher, more famous climb ... Six hours, up, up, up, up ...
The Burgess Shale! - UNESCO World Heritage Site & one of the most important discoveries in Human/Science History!
Look! Fossil! Half a billion years old!
More fossils here ... and here .... and here ...
And now, our Dream was a Team.
And our Team more than just a Dream.
