CMS Oct 17th 2020 Field Trip: Crystal Mtn (Teanaway)

On Oct 17th 2020, we will be going to Crystal Mtn which is north of Ellensburg and part of the Teanaway formation.  Meet 9:45 AM at the Love’s Travel Stop in Ellensburg (I-90 exit 106 – 1512 Highway 97, Ellensburg), about 1 3/4 hour drive from Renton.  We’ll leave there at 10:00 and head north on Reecer Creek Rd.  This is a new site for the club and I’m still working out some details.

Agates, Jasper, Geodes, and Crystal – Bring digging and hard rock tools, buckets, and sturdy shoes. Appropriate clothing for weather, lunch, drinking water and snacks.  Bug spray.  This area was burned about 3 years ago so undergrowth is slight and hiking will be none to moderate.  The road however may require high clearance vehicles.  More on that as we get closer to the trip.
