Lucky Charms of French Creek

This morning on our canoe trip we stopped several times to look for mussels. The main types were the three ridge mussel whose first three ridges are the farthest apart and formed during thier earliest life stages. I found a lucky species called the rabbit's foot mussel, obviously named because of its peculiar shape. It was mind-boggling the number of mussels that could be found in such a small area.But overall, I think the best part of the trip was the rabbit's foot mussel.Yeah, talk about a good luck charm!!!!! What an awesome day. I hope I can do it again in my creek back at home soon!!
