Mason County treasures continued here's an update to my March 21, 2015, post, "Mason County treasures." You may recall that I found some interesting pebble-topped structures in a dry creekbed on a private ranch. In the meantime, the images I submitted to at first were "frassed" (trashed), then archived under "Unidentified spider egg sacs, webs, and retreats."

Then this week, Charley Eiseman, who co-authored Tracks & Signs of Insects and Other Invertebrates, let me know that he'd posted my images on his blog: "Turrets topped with pebbles." Several experts have already weighed in and suggested that the structures were probably created by erosion. Interesting, eh?

Huh! Take that, Utah. These may be small now, but watch out Bryce Canyon.

So not a critter after all. Need a geologists input on that.
