Bass, you forgot to say it was in the Muscovite Family but you did get into the ball park.

JimBob is absolutely correct- there are a number of mica minerals in the muscovite family- most of which have names with 5+ syllables (which is why I won't list them).

I'll take the appropriate prescription of self-flagellation.

No Bass ! You said "...Most likely muscovite mixed with chlorite..."

I am just being an a-hole.

 Limestone! , is b...dy everywhere, i use that sort of thing for my backseat archeology!
Everything built things with that chalk old chalk!
As for artesian basins(i'm not a geologist, i just suspect where things could have been getting a bit on the side for being alive still) underground, its not a real fix i can find a point in, i'm just sitting here being amused watching "BC" move and alter things.

Hi -
I just stumbled in here, it looks like Lighthouse Reef Atoll - off Belize.
BTW my interest in geology began when I decided to learn more about the feature that lies 4oo' beneath my feet - the Chesapeake Bay Impact Crater.  I have lots of info on it, if anyone is interested...

Bring it on!  Several of us would love to hear about the Chesapeake crater.

Baikal ... the only habitat for freshwater seals.
There are freshwater seals on lakes Saimaa and Ladoga too. A few, for a while [:-'(]

Hi Everybody

I'm new here so I'll introduce myself with a photo of an area a hundred or so kms to the west of where I live...and another photo of specimens I collect about 200 kms to the east.  I live in what city?

Yes, those are the real colours.

As a geologist I can hopefully make some positive contributions to this form. I'm impressed by the high level of input I have read.

Welcome to the forum!  It'll be nice to have another rock pimp about.

Calgary?

I think the almost-Canadian is right. (He lives in Montana.) Dinosaur Provincial Park to the east, Rockies to the west.

Glad to have you. We  are a bit stale at the moment as we have gotten to know each other fairly well. Those who comment about me say - "yep, only too well in his case."

We could have used you on the "soap hole" question. Stumped a PhD friend of mine at GSA. BUT it is always good to have another petroleum geologist around. As the population of them in Calgary is far greater than the "other" type, perhaps I'll finally have a friend here (Sob!)

Yup, near Calgary.

Re soap holes.  I was out hikng around Rockyford, Alberta many years ago...looking for arrowheads and such.  'Woomph'  The ground gave way and I was up to my chest in chilly 'bentonite goo'.  Must be the way a walnut feels in an ice cream.   It was miserable and funny at the same time.

 After that I'd always test pie-crust-like surfaces with a walking stick. There's another similar area of soap holes when you cross the Red Deer River just north of Jenner (on the right side about a kilometer or so downstream)

Small lake, water is too clear to be glacial.  Mixture of deciduous and evergreen.  Small cabin, tent and person? with a yellow slicker on.  Rocks on beach are not particularly well-rounded and layered (sedimentary) with a bit of iron-staining. I would have to agree with Jim Bob, a mountain lake somewhere east of the Mississippi or eastern Canada.

Eastern half of North America = True
The water is VERY clear.  With polarized glasses you could see the bottom in excess of 75 feet...
The cabin you see is unusable.  The blue structure is an attempt at a wind break.  The yellow is one of two tents involved...
That camping spot was featured in an issue of Backpacking magazine, and inspired our trip.
Small lake = not so accurate....

Thanks for the welcome, I wish I had come across this forum long ago, it looks to be a great place!

Old Faithful is a geothermal feature, not a building...but you're close.
