On Saturday March 21, 12 folks in 8 vehicles went to Baker Lake / Swift Creek. The weather was a little cool and damp, but all in all not that bad. This area has sedimentary rocks that have metamorphed into some interesting swirls and patterns, as well as some agate, jasper, and an occasional piece of nephrite jade. There are various colors to be had, but green is the predominant one with a lot of serpentine family rocks there. Also a lot of quartz veined rocks. I think this is a good spot to go early in the season before the reservoir pools up because many of our other sites are covered with snow or too cold.
