Of course, I'm back at home now...nothing like being away from home for a while to make you appreciate sleeping in, good coffee, and your own bed.
Here's a few pictures of the site (if you click on them you can get the sweet larger version!):
The geology out at the site was pretty cool. These are some terrific cross-bedded sandstones, with some really cool cannon-ball sized nodules that are sitting on the ground in front of them. (Bonus: the Wind Farm in the background)
A picture from the rig: Fuckin' Cory, Mike, Pedro, and Peter setting casing.
Picture of the rig deck after cold weather came in...
Here's what the rig looked like.
I was paid to hike around and make a map of the geology in the area, it got to be colder than life itself out there. do I look like a ninja?
While I was out mapping, I found a spinal column hanging out of the outcrop. I don't think its that old (as in, its probably not a true fossil yet). its probably a horse thats a few hundred years old.
Ahh! beautiful Wyoming! This is the entire site area, both rigs are in this picture but very tough to see, and you can see the wind farm in the background. Did I mention that it was really fucking windy up there? (also, those bones are from a previous field geologist they had out there that couldn't handle the madness).
