On April 15th 2023, we have scheduled a trip on private property near Rufus, Oregon for Biggs Jasper/Agate. This trip will be led by the owner of Sherman County Rocks rock shop and we need to pay by the pound for what we collect/keep. $5/pound for Beers Mtn jasper and $2/pound for China Hollow jasper. There are 7 different kinds of jasper/agate on his property. We leave at 8:30 AM from his rock shop, so you’ll either need to be on the road very early that morning, or drive down on Friday and get a hotel room or camp site. More details will be sent out to my Field Trips distribution list as we get closer, but if you’re interested, let me know, and make your own arrangements.
The idea here is to make a full weekend trip into central OR and WA, Saturday being spent in north/central OR for Biggs Jasper and Sunday at Saddle Mtn.
