Palen Mountains Field Trip - March 13, 2010

We had 26 people and 9 vehicles!  The weather was perfect!  The road was NOT!
Due to a very deep gully that one of our vehicles could not cross, we were unable to go all the way to the psilomelane mines.  That will be another trip from a different direction.  We got some nice marble, though, and had a GREAT time hunting quartz crystals.  Chad and Kelly, new member applicants were afflicted with "beginners luck" so they found the most and best crystals!
