The sun stuck it's head out from behind the massive rain clouds blowing through our region and I couldn't resist the temptation to locate a few more of those CB agates on the last day of March Madness.Knowing my sunshine was limited and braving howling winds I elected to hunt a road just minutes out of town. It wasn't long after arriving at my selected spot that I was rewarded with a thumbnail size burgundy agate just waiting to be picked up.I concluded my hunt approx 90 min later just before another downpour. Total count 38 agates ranging in size from a dime to several that were a little larger than a silver dollar.
Wondering if there are other agate addicts out there.
5 out of 6 found this valuable. Do you?
