TRIPS FROM THE PAST ...
Just a few memories from some of our trips are captured below. They include field trips to collect whalebone from the California coast, orbicular rhyolite and jasp-agate from the Cambria area and San Simeon Creek, Gem Hill for agate & petrified wood, Wrightwood to search for Actinolite, Quartzsite for buying rocks from vendors that come from all over the world, North Edwards for Travertine, and the hills above Palmdale for Norite.
November 2015, We were honored to tour the Omnya Mine Near Lucerne Valley
Our amazing Field Trip Chairman managed to arrange for a tour of the Omnya Mine near Lucerne Valley. The chance to collect minerals at this active mine, including many of them that fluoresce, does not happen often. We were thrilled to have had this opportunity!
July 2015, the Club took a trip to Refugio State Beach for petrified bone and agate!
The June 2015 Field Trip was to Cerro Gordo!
The June field trip was hosted by the Lone Pine Club, on Sunday June 28th. This trip gave attendees the opportunity to collect minerals on the dumps of a privately owned silver ghost town/mine! (Pictures will be posted when available.)
