Tiger: Good luck and good weather to you. If it is chilly, well, at least the buzztails will be inactive. Hope you find lots of big, inclusion-free stones loaded with schiller. That country over around Plush is fascinating.

Good luck down there Tiger- I remember a few years back we were trying to get together and do this, I'm glad you're finally getting the chance. Perfect time of year to do it also, not too hot, not too cold. Unfortunately I have commitments here at home this time, but I'd love to see pics when you get back
PS, do a little walking around out in the desert where people haven't dug before. My folks got some amazing colored stones this way just eyeballing the ground last year!

Tiger, there is also picture jasper up on Hart Mountain, but usually many, many ticks this time of year. Be sure to take repellant for around your pant cuffs, etc.
