fossil collecting trip Fossil Collecting Trip - Chesapeake Bay - Miocene

I took a short trip to the Chesapeake Bay area in search of the Calvert Miocene fossils. It was just after a tropical storm went through, the water was high, and not allot of fossil shark teeth were found. However, some cool things were found in the collapsed calvert cliff chunks from the storm. Some of the fossils found include a nice baleen whale jaw section, and associated fossil remains of an early dolphin.
