July 20th, 2019 Greenwater Field Trip Report

We had a gorgeous day for our Greenwater trip. Sunny blue skies and perfect temperatures. 9 folks in 6 vehicles went up and we all made it back. FR70 has about 8 or 9 miles of paved road and then 7 or 8 miles of gravel to get to the opal dig site up near Gov Meadows. Gravel was a bit rough in places, but the opal was worth it. The black opal and the deep red opal are my favs, but seems hard to come by. Plentiful creamy browns and bluish grays though. A few small pieces of petrified wood were also found.
Next trip is Gold Panning with NAMA off the Blewett Pass Hwy on Aug 3rd.

Presidents Message

  • From the Top of the Rock Pile …. by Kat Koch There will be no club meeting in November. I just read Gov. Inslee’s most recent memorandum and I really don’t think we are going to be able to hold any meetings for sometime yet. I know we are all anxious to see one another and engage in some good rock talk. Hopefully, that time isn’t too far off. In the meantime, as long as the weather holds up, please take advantage of our club field trips. Roger works so very hard to keep this monthly event going.
