Sorting through my files as I prepare for the upcoming field season, I came across my notes for our two-week field trip to México in March 2008.
Xiaoming and I flew to Aguascalientes to meet our collaborator, Dr. Oscar Carranza of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
For two weeks, we prospected around southern Zacatecas, discovering lacustrine and fluvial deposits containing fossils of Hemphillian age.
The excellent weather and muy delicioso food made the beautiful central plateau of México an unforgettable place to work. Our discoveries included fossil horses, pronghorns, borophagine canids, gomphothere elephants, and a single sloth wrist bone.
Viva la México!
