- Montana Field TripMontana Field Trip
Trip leaders Bill & Mary Davis. They invite anyone interested to join them to take a trip to Montana to collect at some classic localities for smoky quartz, amethyst scepters, sapphires, and who knows what else. Go for part of the trip, or stay the whole week. Call Bill and Mary to coordinate and to get detailed information. This is the first of 2 Club trips planned to Montana, so, if you can't make this one, there is another opportunity later in the summer.
- Honey Bee/Queen Bee TripHoney Bee/Queen Bee TripTime: 9:00 am
Amazonite, smoky quartz, fluorite, etc. Meet at 9:00 AM at Community Center in “downtown” Harris Park. Cars will then caravan from there to the collection site. Easy walk from parking area. Map at May meeting. Directions: To get to Harris Park, take U.S. Hwy 285 southwest from Denver approximately 30 miles. Go thru Conifer, then Pine Jct., then about another 4 miles until you come to a stop light at the junction of State Road 43 (can only turn right—north). Turn north onto State Road 43 (may also be called 43A), and drive about 10 miles to Harris Park. The only potentially confusing point is where Road 43 turns to Road 47, maybe 6-7 miles up the highway. Just stay on the primary paved road (keep to right) and it will take you to Harris Park. The Community Center is the only “large” building around. Everything else is individual homes/cabins.
