Dear Santa, I want a slab of Burgess Shale



You can't get this anywhere.  I was near the site in the winter, and saw some slabs in the local museum.  In the summer they take visitors and have hilarious stories about people trying to run off with a piece.  Usually a grizzly bear gets them.  :)

Now we can out own slabs to hang on the wall.  I would put in a bit more vertical just to make them stand out.  After all, this is art!

A slab of Burgess shale for Christmas. I told my wife and she said "me too, who wouldn't want it?" I'm lucky to have this spouse!
