All rockhounds are invited to join us for a field trip to Jasper Hill in the south Cady Mountains Saturday, September 30th.

As the name implies, this is a hill densely covered in all sorts of colorful jaspers.
And for those that want to take a hike, the nearby hills have all sorts of jaspers and seam agates!

We will meet at the Hector Rd exit of i40 at 9AM. Meet north of the highway, past the underpass.

High clearance and 4 wheel drive is suggested. Although this is mostly an easy drive, there are a few Sandy spots and a few that require somewhat higher clearance.

If your're not sure of your vehicle's capabilities, let's carpool and save gas.

This will be a fun trip!

Looking forward to seeing you there.
