This collecting trip will be for chalcedony lined geodes.  Not much chance of finding crystal lined geodes but they do fluoresce nicely.  Rick Olson will be our leader for this trip. 


Saturday, October 28th will be a field trip to Potts Canyon for Chalcedony-lined Geodes and Agate. We will meet at 9 AM at the Visitor parking lot in Superior( look for the red Caboose )(washrooms are available). A high clearance vehicle is needed. There is some sand to travel thru, but 4-wheel drive is optional. Temperatures should be mild so dress appropriately and hiking shoes are recommended. Bring water, hat, sunscreen and bucket/rock bag to carry specimens. There is plenty of room for parking at site, but carpooling will be available.

Contact Rick Olson at (928)892-3481 for more info.

From Stan Celestian:  Most of the collecting is on hillsides with loose rock.  PLEASE arrive ready to go.  Have a full tank of gas (gas is available in Superior), good tires and an even better attitude.  Long sleeve shirt and long pants are suggested.
