On Oct. 14th, 2023, we’ll be going to Red Top for agate, jasper, and crystal geodes.
Option 1 has some fine agate, jasper, and occasional crystal geode fragments and is about 50 yards up a steep slope.
Option 2 has more whole and half geodes in the diggings, but is a 4/10 mile hike, the first 100 yards being fairly steep, then flattening out.
Meet 9:30 AM at the Cle Elum Safeway around the gas pumps (I-90 Exit 84, 804 W 1st St, Cle Elum, WA 98922). Group leaves promptly at 9:45. Bring dig tools. The meeting spot is about 1 1/2 hour drive from Renton/Kent. There are DOT restrooms at Snoqualmie Pass and I also like to use the Cle Elum Safeway for coffee, restrooms, gas.
Contact me for updates if planning to attend.
