CMS June 2018 Fieldtrip

June 9th 2018 – We are planning to go up to Government Meadows in the upper Greenwater area.  I know this is not the regular 3rd Sat. of the month trip, but this is again a joint venture with the Puyallup Valley Club and it sounds like Tony will be joining us with his expertise.  I heard him say “You can dig anywhere up there and find good stuff”.  So I’m anxious to see if that’s true.
Meet at 8:45 at the Enumclaw Ranger Station and group leaves promptly at 9:00.  Dig and hard rock tools.
On the May trip we were able to drive up to 4000 ft elevation without encountering snow on the roads.  So I think by June 9th it will be pretty clear up there.

June 16th 2018 – If there is interest in another trip for the regular weekend (3rd Sat. of the month), I’d be willing to lead a trip over the mountains to Red Top for agate material.  Otherwise, we might save this spot for the July trip. Little Naches over Chinook Pass is also an option.  Feedback to Roger.Danneman@Q.com
