For our June 11th Field Trip to Little Naches, we got lucky in that Chinook Pass opened up on June 10th saving us from the longer drive around. Plus we had beautiful weather, partly sunny skies with temps in the low to mid 60s. Heavy rains hit the area on Thursday and Friday. The ground was soft for digging, but sticky on our boots. 23 people, 1 dog, and 12 vehicles made the trip. So much fun. We spent about 3 hours at the thunder egg site. Then went on to the lily pad site which yielded some quick treasures. Spent about 1 1/2 hours there. Then went to the fossil site where we picked up some freshly eroded leaf fossils. On the way back I stopped for a few scenery pics. It turned out to be a 12 hour day for me, but really enjoyed the group that turned out.
List of attendees: Peggy S. and Paul A. with guest Kalun, Loren M., Robert M. and family, Noelle B., Kelly B. and guest Clair, Kamera M. and her sweet dog, Nik B., Megan guest from Tri-cities with 3 boys, Brooke P. and brother Bryce, Erica D. and Chris, new member Ananda C. and of course me.
Next trip scheduled is to Greenwater on July 17th for agate, jasper, and common opal. This is on a Sunday because the CMS Summer Picnic is on Saturday July 16, which includes an auction of club material.
