Oregon Coast trip finds.


Recommended Posts

We got back recently from a trip to the Oregon coast.  We went fossil hunting a bit north of Newport.  Here are a few of our finds.  We have never hunted on the coast for fossils.  It was in very soft matrix and they were loaded with small concretions.  We brought a bunch home and cracked them open and found many had shells.

The preservation is beautiful.  Is the specimen center-right hash? 

Yes it is.  There are so many pieces like this, large and small.  I will post a larger piece we found later today.  It is a scallop shell.
