Day 1: Zhadagou

7 August 2010. Zhada, Tibet

We finally had a good night's sleep at our home away from home.

Gary and Jack set up the preparation laboratory in their room; acryloid glue was made, curation table was set up, and supplies (plaster bandages, wrapping paper, stationary, specimen bags, etc.) were tallied.

This morning we are driving along Zhadagou in rainy weather (muddy too!), on the western trail of the two routes to the north of town. The Sutlej River is muddy and rapid, indication of continued precipitation in the area.

We hope to revisit the locality ZD0701, where abundant fossils were recovered in 2007.
