This weekend ...

This weekend, VMNH paleontologist, Alex Hastings was back in a cave, training for future fossil-collecting cave work. This time he was near Blacksburg, Virginia where there are some beautiful caverns! Light is pretty limited (just a headlamp) so photos are a little dark (not a surprise, right?). Pretty cool to run into salamanders deep underground!
