End of Wooster Israeli Fieldwork — For Now

September 9th, 2009

MITZPE RAMON, ISRAEL–After today’s work near Makhtesh Ramon, our fieldwork is over for this season.  This evening I pack up our collections in my luggage, have a last dinner with Yoav and his family in their desert home, and then get some sleep before a very early departure tomorrow morning.  I am looking forward to returning soon with Wooster Independent Study students to continue our work in the Mesozoic rocks of southern Israel.
