I began to wonder about all kinds of rocks after a particular camping trip on Red Creek in Tucker County, West Virginia. Today there is a public Red Creek Campground near Dolly Sods, but no so back then. There wasn’t even a road in from the backside of Blackwater at the time, but my dad grew up there so he knew all the old fire tower trails. As usual, I was playing in the creek, and I found a fossil! A perfect fossil. A perfect fossil of a moth! That was it. I was hooked.
