The reason this lower plain is called by a different name and considered separate from the Two Medicine formation is that between the two formations is a dome, a bulge in the skin of the earth. Like a bubble in a viscous liquid coming to a boil, this bulge has been rising up intermittently since before the Cretaceous. It probably bulged most vigorously during times when the mountains were thrusting up. The result is that the middle of the plain we've been talking about is not preserved. Instead we find this bulge, known as the Sweetgrass Arch.

I haven't mentioned it until now, but there was another fossil we brought back to Bob's backyard: a skull, and a telling one. The Brandvold family had found it. While we had been digging up the nest of baby bones, they had been attacking another nearby fossil deposit with pick and shovel. By the Brandvold family I mean Marion and her husband John, and David and Laurie Trexler.
