On Oct. 16th we went to Red Top again and it was another gorgeous day. Clear blue skies and temps in the 60s. We had 26 people in 13 vehicles. 22 made the hike up hill to the meadow while 4 did the lower dig. A few of us did both.
I found a few nice agate nodules in the Meadow dig and some very nice agate and jasper in the lower dig site.
Our next field trip is scheduled for Nov. 6th at First Creek. This is a 2 mile hike on a good road bed with a few ups and downs. Jogging carts or wagons work well to carry the load. Mostly we find agate nodules, crystal plates, and geodes (whole or fragments) here. This is probably our last field trip for 2021, unless we get some nice late Nov. or early Dec. weather. Trip info goes out a week before the trip.
