We've made it to Ultan Ula II and have spent a full day working in The Dragon's Tomb (aka Tomb of The Dragons). Here are some photos:
Each year at this time I've had the pleasure of working with the Korea-Mongolia International Dinosaur Project. This year I opted out to take the Montessori High School at University Circle to the Gobi. However, we did meet up with Phil Currie (above), Eva Kopplehus, Dave Eberth and Derek Larson who are working with the KID group. They had driven down from Bugen Tsav where the rest of the team is to work at Ultan Ula I-III for a couple of days. We spent a morning togather in The Dragon's Tomb.

A poached tail.
Only to discovery that the bag of 'plaster' that we brought out was actually a bag of chlorine bleach!
Hiking back from where Dr. Badamgarov and Evans found...
a therizinosaur; here's the giant claw of this weird dino.
