Anza-Borrego Ocotillo Wells SVRA Field Trip, April 14, 2011

       How amazing that the weather could cooperate so beautifully for us after so many days of very fierce winds!

But, of course!!  The winds uncovered the petrified wood for us, making it fairly easy to find, and several very nice pieces were found.


      We arrived in the collecting area about 9:30 AM, and after stopping in three different areas, suddenly it was 

1:30 PM already!  

      There were seven tired people ready for refreshments.

The Travertine Grill in Salton City was waiting for us to conclude another wonderful time of rock hunting with great friends, as pictured left to right around the table: Darlene Bjork, Allen Valley, Al Grainger, Hubert Thompson, Marge Buxton, Tina Gonzales, and Barbara Catlin.
