A few people got here on Friday night, but most of us arrived on Saturday morning for an inspiring 2-day weekend just south of the Devil's Head campground area in central Colorado. Devil's Head is west of the small city of Castle Rock and north of Woodland Park in Pike National Forest.
|Brian and Wendy M. early on Saturday morning, ready to dig. The morning was a little chilly, but it warmed up nicely.||Rockhounds from the Gates and RAMS clubs getting ready. This was a joint trip with those two clubs and the North Jeffco Gem & Mineral club.|
|After two miles of hiking, we finally reached our destination. This was obvious when we saw these Quartz and Microcline crystals in a very large piece of matrix.||Our trip leader Jim, and others, digging for smoky quartz and other goodies.|
