Sept 15th, 2018 Little Naches Field Trip Report

CMS folks joined a Mineral Council trip to Little Naches on Sat. Sept. 15. We had 16 vehicles on this trip, 5 vehicles (+1 guest) of which were from CMS. It was a great day with perfect fall weather. 3 sites visited. 1st was a hike to Thunder Egg hilltop site. 2nd was to a hillside for Lily Pad jasper (which is like small thunder eggs in matrix having red and green colors). 3rd was for leaf fossils in mudstone matrix. Quite a variety of material and a lot of fun.

If you have another talent besides collecting rocks please let me know. I found out John Cornell does beaded
