There was a good turnout. Over 60+ rockhounds attended. Deb and I were there
Wed to Sun. Thursday we collected Bay Laurel petrified wood by the Colorado
River. We then had a potluck Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. Friday
Adam Dean led a group to find the Pailsy Agate, Matt Boeck helped out and led
field trips to the Straw beds for nodules/geodes, agate and for psilomelane. I
led a group to the opal mine and dug for fire agate. Sat we all went out
collecting nodules, geodes and chalcedony.
The first field trip I ever went on was Wiley's Well, and now the first CFMS
field trip leading was Wiley's Well.
The weather was sometimes windy, but most of them time it wasn't. It was in the
40's at night, so it was cold.
We had a campfire each night to keep warm and shared all the stories of
rockhounding. I'll put some photos on the CFMS website and some photos on LA
Rocks. Matt Boeck, thanks for helping out and having your additional field
Thanks to OBMS for having Wiley's Well field trip and the potluck; it is
