Default 4/12/2018 Rock Hounding Apache Tears, near Superior, AZ 4x4 EZ
Thursday, April 12, 2018
Picket Post Mountain, Superior, AZ
4x4 EZ Rockhounding Run
Meeting Time: 10:00 AM
Meeting Place: U.S. 60 & Perlite Rd. CLICK HERE FOR MAP

This isn't a 4x4 run; we'll only go a couple miles on a maintained dirt road to a site known for Apache Tears. We will have to walk a short distance (less than 1/4 mile, I think).

Plan on being out all day - bring lunch, lots of water, sun protection, rock hammer, eye protection, camera, etc.

Note from Kermit: Small ones can be found on the ground everywhere, but if you wantto go home wit egg size ones bring a good size hammer, 8 - 12 inch chisel, gloves, and a hard hat.


Attending:

dzJeepchic & Number 7
Kermit
CAVU2
Bruce & Lois (guests of G&D)

We're going some place different, where I've never been before, but I'll take you out there sometime. Have fun at your Mom & Dad's!
