This view of the cliffs in Calvert County, Maryland is gorgeous. I don't often see quite the vivid color range in this formation. I didn't linger, though, and I was wading in the bay to keep my distance. See those trees at the top of the 40 ft +/- cliff? The ones with the roots hanging over the edge? Those aren't going to be at the top of the cliff for long. At this point, they are probably only still there out of sheer habit. We did her a landslide the night we arrived, the spoils of which are in some of the following images in this album. I was on a trip earlier in the year, at a different part of the cliffs, when someone did get hit in the head by a bit of falling clay. Lucky for her, it wasn't a big chunk or from very high up. She *only* had a concussion. If ever you are close to the cliffs like this, watch and listen to where you are at all times. Run like crazy if you hear anything falling! DO NOT TOUCH THE CLIFFS! DO NOT STAND ON THE TOP EDGE OF THE CLIFFS! That prize Meg tooth isn't worth your life.

Shamalama posted a topic in Fossil NewsI just saw this article online about a school group that was collecting fossils at Lilydale Regional Park near St. Paul. Two kids died when a rain soaked gravel slope failed. http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/05/23/18441754-two-children-killed-in-minnesota-field-trip-landslide?lite
