Because I missed a trip to Fossil Beach the last time I went to this park, I had to make another trip! I took a Friday off from work to hopefully avoid the crowds and there was hardly anyone there.
The trail was very nicely kept up through a forest of lots of different trees.
Looks like this one was struck by lightning.
A ghostly tree!
Finally made it to the beach!
But some of it was closed because of erosion. I have no doubt that is where all of the cool fossilized sharks teeth are, but I obeyed the law and kept my distance.
I knew that the trail was going to be about 1.5 miles round trip, but what I didn’t know was that there was a really steep hill. The way down wasn’t so bad, but the way up was a little tough. You can’t really tell from this angle, but that is a hill. I should have taken it from the bottom looking up, but this is the top, looking down.
I didn’t go in the visitors center, but there is a huge field behind it where you can view the Potomac River.
Went back to the other beach to look for more sea glass, and it looked like a whole different park. There were maybe two people there, as opposed to the 200+ the last time I was there!
While I did find one small piece of sea glass, but no fossils, it was still a very nice day!
