Fossil collecting at Hueston Woods, Ohio

At the end of June, I visited Hueston Woods state park and went fossil collecting. The first time I visited the park was 30 years ago when I was in high school. My memory of the collecting areas were vague as well as the park amendities. The park is located near Miami University of Ohio near Oxford, Ohio. A very nice little college town. The fossil collecting was very good, although I did not find any geodizd brachiopods with calcite I had collected 30 years ago. There were a few locations north of Oxford outside the park which I did not get to visit. There is brachipod thick horizon in the limestone which probably has these geodized brachs. After 30 years, this is still a great place to collect fossils. Great specimens can still be found! Links:
