Oct 3rd, 2020 Red Top Field Trip Report

On Sat. Oct. 3rd we went up to Red Top again.  We had beautiful weather. In fact, maybe a little too hot if you had to dig in the sun. We had 19 people on this trip and two dig sites in mind, so it worked out well when Phillip Trepanier took half the group up Indian Creek Trail to the agate beds meadow, while I took the other half of the group to the dig site lower on the mountain. Then after 3 hours there was an opportunity to switch sites. Pics 1-2 from meeting spot. Pic 3 from lower dig. Pic 4-5 from meadow (upper dig). Pic 6-7 is Jasper and Agate I collected at lower dig. Pic 8-9 are nodules and geodes from the upper dig.
