Engineer Creek Bridge

Look closely in the limestone outcroppings to the northeast of the bridge, and you will spot fragments of fossil coral. This limestone was formed on the floor of a shallow sea about 400 million years ago. Pieces of a coral reef, broken by storm waves, came to rest in the soft lime mud. They eventually turned to rock and were uplifted into folded mountains about 150 million years ago.

As always, please leave the fossils for others to see, and take away only photos.
