A view looking along the bluff back (south) towards the Port Williams boat ramp
Look at that stratigraphy! McHenry for scale.
Notches cut into the base of the bluff...likely a product of the persistent high water of winter combined with wave action generated by the east wind we've been seeing a a bit of lately.
Okay, someone help me with this one. In places where there were pockets of well-sorted sand in the bluffs there were these things...clearly organic, parchment consistency...what are they?
Here they are in situ
