Imagine that we're hiking in CaliforniaâEUR(TM)s blazing desert, 100 miles from the Pacific coastline. Imagine the huge mountains and the winding canyons. What would you not expect to find? Seashells! Evicence of a coral reef.

We’ve found seashells from shore to shore, on mountaintops and places in between.  Chances are, you have seashell fossils in geologic formations in your home state.  Be sure to check local regulations about fossil collecting, which is often prohibited.  Take a camera and shoot plenty of photos but leave the fossils behind for future generations.

once the deserts were oceans.... Near my hometown is an old woodland area, which shows a rock on which you can see that it once was a coral reef. The forest around is old grown, haunted and mystical and it contains many old barrows and if you go through there, you're almost waiting for an elf to appear behind the next bush. :D
