The weather was perfect! 

We found enough fossil shells to go with our Educational Rock Sample bags! The added bonus to our rock hunting was

finding some very nice calcite dog tooth crystals! 

Sometimes there has to be a bad side: Darlene's Jeep had mechanical problems, but she was able to drive it back to Interstate 8 and call AAA,

which covered for a tow back to her mechanic in Cathedral City,so it wasn't so bad after all!
