Oregon Coast Agate and Fossil Trek

Postby PoC » Thu Nov 26, 2015 3:27 pm

Took a trip to the Oregon coast between Lincoln City and Newport with Dan the other day. We beach combed like mad - from about noon one day to dark and the next day was from early morning until past dark. Here's the pics:

Random fossils or bits of fossils could be seen poking up through the bedrock and in boulders
