First Rockhounding Trips 2013

April 21, 2013

It has been a hard start to the rockhounding season this year but at least it is happening.  I had put together a pretty ambitions list of places I want to go this year starting in early March.  Other than one outing with the family in mid March each trip has been canceled for various reasons, mostly the weather.

This weekend was going to be an all out rockhounding weekend but Friday night my vehicle started making some bad sounds and I wasn’t going to risk having problems in the middle of nowhere.  Saturday morning my friend and mechanic, Tim, stopped by and found that the idler pulley somehow come loose and got debris behind it.  I was relieved to find out it was a simple no cost fix.  Thank you, Tim.

Now, Sunday morning, I am waiting for friends from Twin Falls, ID to arrive.  We are planning on taking their quads out to Succor Creek park.  I am hoping to make it to some thunder egg beds that I have not been able to get to yet.

Hopefully I will have some new photos of this trip posted soon.  For now you will just have to see a few from the trip in March.
