gastropods in Menkrawit layers

 Finally we were lucky today! After having spotted a track on the satellite image we first crossed through the forest along the coastal ridge, only to discover that there also was a road. Along this road we first encountered limestones, soon to change into coastal plain deposits. The facies is very similar to the Garden Hotel outcrops, although most age indications seem to hint at an older age.
