rapp creek hunting

Sorry to hear about you site being destroyed. :(

This happens far too often. 

 

Nice haul of interesting finds, despite the lack of Wow factor finds.

Sometimes, it takes reminding that some people cannot easily find fossils of any type nearby to them. 

These are all pretty cool, in my book. ;)

Thanks for the empathy!  Usually it is rip rap dumped on the beach to stop erosion (sometimes contributed to by collectors digging; one here had a power water pump and hose that he destroyed many cliff banks with and stopped the collecting at the same time!) If kids, they would have surely dumped their diggings in the creek and the smaller stuff would have escaped downstream.  If adults, I'm guessing they left with at least ten five-gallon buckets full.  Maybe for kids to sort through; nothing there is super valuable (and I wouldn't carry a full five gallon bucket of dirt, it's a long walk for me).  Was getting lazy anyway.  The creek has been picked over for 50 years, i'll just start digging in some other spots.

 

Here is my ecphora (about 2 inches cubed).  Possibly they found a bunch of them?  There's always some small broken ones in that spot.  Or were.

I'm sorry for the damage to your hunting spot. Still, you got some nice finds, and the ecphora is beautiful!

Bad news regarding your cowshark spot, but some nice finds there.

The oval vert is very interesting and rather nice. :)

Nice finds for a dug out spot.

Hope Your next site produces better and more.

Thanks everyone!  I see pieces of ecphora which were much bigger; they are fragile and the kids tend to be rough getting shells out of their way.  That's the biggest near intact one I've found this year.  Miserably cold here for another day, possibly try the beach tomorrow.  

I may haul out the vertebrae I've found and see if anyone knows what they came from.  Cetacean vertebrae used to be common and too heavy to haul out, but now are all gone.  The smaller ones come in many shapes and sizes.
