A beautiful 65 degrees mostly sunny skies and pleasant breeze on our First Creek field trip last Saturday. We had 10 members join on this trip. First spot we tried was about 1.8 mile hike in and then up slope from there. Mostly seam agate in white, blue, and/or with green. Possibly some pocket agate, but layered not banded. The 2nd spot we tried was up slope from 2.2 miles in. Most of my material came from there. Layers of agate in seams or around crystal pockets. After cleaning some of it up I was pleasantly surprised. I’ll tumble some and believe it will look very nice. Will also try a Dremel cleanup on some. And will cut some of it.
