Burned Rock, Nestled, with Snail Trails

IMG_2761.JPG

Scattered here and there on the beach at Joggins Fossil Cliffs are brilliant red and orange rocks. These rocks were apparently burned in a fire in the coal mine (closed in 1958), and have since washed out of the mine. While the rocks and the day’s snail trails are certainly not fossils, they do make an interesting tide line composition.
A note: the colors have not been enhanced at all in the photos.

Here is another scorched rock from right along the tide line.
