In part 4, I want to share some impressions of the site where we recorded the second stratigraphic profile. It's an old quarry (Steinbruch Schuchardt) near Cornberg, Hesse. Today, it's used for open-air concerts.
This photo shows half of our group having lunch break on sandstones at an artificial lake right in the middle of the old quarry. On the left side you see a ballustrade and a boardwalk. The next photo was taken right next to that boardwalk.
That longish thing on the left next to my hammer is an ichnofossil of Scymnognathus parringtoni. That's an extinct genus of the synapsids. Too many paleontological words? It's a footprint of an extinct reptile.
I took this photo in the museum next to the quarry. Indeed, they really know how to make money. It shows what the region looked like at the time of sedimentation. You also see a Scymnognathus parringtoni leaving its marks.
