Calvert Cliffs - 2Nd Trip

The images linked to this blog entry are from my second trip to the Calvert Cliff formations (St. Mary's). Not a bad day considering the tide was rather high, the waves choppy, and a large group of loud students from the University of Salisbury showed up. Ran into two other forum members; wolffish and randsphilly

Calvert Cliffs, Md

These are my recent finds from a March 2013 trip to Calvert Cliffs, MD. The image you see is of the Maryland state fossil, Ecphora. Didn't find an intact megaladon this time, but I'll go back out.

Dinosaur Park, Laurel Md

I recently went up to a place named Dinosaur Park, in Laurel Maryland. Mostly triassic aged stuff. The place was originally set up to be an iron mine, and the minors started digging up bones. This location is famous for the discovery of the Astrodon a large Sauropod. The images I have inserted are pictures of carbonized pieces of fern. In more common terms, it's coal. Roughly 120 million years old coal. Some of the coal still has iron traces on it.
