Geo 365: April 18, Day 108: Midden

It's not terribly clear at this scale, but if you click to enlarge, you should be able to see that the soil exposed under the grass is chock full of shells. This is a midden, essentially a garbage dump from the remains of Native Americans feasting on the readily available shellfish in the tidepools at what is now called Cape Perpetua.
