A Scary Archaeological Trip

No, it's not a new discovery, it was just an eye opening experience for me while I was fossil hunting today with the puppies. Like any normal day, I got on my Columbia hiking shoes (no this is not an ad, they're new and I love them *smile*), grabbed my water bottle, and headed down the trail.

I found this area brimming with fossilized bones from animals a few weeks ago and thought, why not explore the evidence a bit further. I had my trowel in hand and the dogs pulling my other arm in another direction. Why, I'm not sure. Imagine two dogs wanting nothing to do with animals bones. It's a bit bizarre to tell you truth, but to be honest, I'm not sure why there are so many in one place. There could be someone living in the forest and this is their so called pit of bones.

No sooner then I tried to start picking around, I felt like I was shot in the shoulder. I've had bee and wasp stinks, but this was worse. I could feel the pain rush down my arm and the right shoulder blade was killing me. I immediately grabbed my shoulder to try and dull the pain. I was looking behind me at the same time and saw nothing and nobody. Needless to say, I started I turned around and started running back home and I don't run.

I just got home an hour ago and looked at my back. There's a huge welt but no stinger inside the wound, as I tried to scrape it with a butter knife. I'm at a loss and a bit freaked out. Either someone doesn't want me near those bones and shot me with a pellet or it was something supernatural.

What do you think? Isn't it strange?
