Sounds pretty cool. Unfortunately, metamorphic rock is so damn tricky to date.

True, more research must be done. ." Gonzalez told the Mammoth Trumpet that the only way to fully answer the critics would be "to excavate an area where there has been no quarry activity and uncover more footprints. We will do this as soon as we can." Sounds like fun wish I could be there.
