Sept 14th, 2019 Little Naches Field Trip Report

On Sat. Sept 14th we went over Chinook Pass to Little Naches for Thunder Eggs, Lily Pad Jasper and Leaf Fossils. We had 16 folks altogether in 6 vehicles. Weather was great. No rain. Lots of fun. I managed to load up a bucket from the thunder egg site, where we spent 3 hours. Then we moved to the lily pad site where I loaded up another bucket of material. And then on to the fossils for a short time. The mudstone where the carbonized leaf fossils are found is estimated to be about 35 MYA according to the state geology maps.
