Photographer's Note

I call this photo Fossil River because of the number of fossils found along the banks of this 14 km river.

It's true name is Manuels River, located Conception Bay South (Newfoundland), or CBS as the locals call it.

The fossils (Trilobites) found in this location date back too 500 million years ago. In the early part of the 20th century, 15,000 specimens where collected in one year by Professor B. F. Howell of Princeton University. It is internationally known and samples can still be found, especially in the lower section.

If you ever get the chance to take a hike along it's banks , as myself and my 2 sons did on this cold December day, enjoy the great views but keep your head down.

I completed a WS due to the comments regarding sharpness. Hope this is better, any comments would be appreciated.
