This elderly man is clearing the sand from a fossil of a prehistoric predecessor to the alligator/crocodile. My theme refers to the fossil. But as the man put it, he’s almost as old as the fossil.
As he explained the process of cleaning the fossil… I asked permission to take his picture. Then I looked around and found an Ammonite pendant that I could afford. His wife came out of the trailer, slowly, and dug for my change. I am very impressed that this couple still come back year after year to do the Quartzsite shows.
Today is the last day of the show. They intend to stay in Quartzsite for at least another week before they head back to Seligman, AZ… since it is still snowing up there.
