First of all, a huge thank you to our Hero, Dennis, who checked out Mount Laidlaw for our field trip and discovered that the route up the mountain is already snowed in and that destination will not work for Saturday.
Meanwhile, Dennis, on this last trip as our Wagon Master, is willing to take us to the Similkameen River – the red bridge site or one of the other sites on the other side of Keremeos, which have been good rock hounding sites in other years. We will still meet at 10 AM at Twin Lakes Convenience Store and head through via Ollala to Keremeos and beyond. Bring your lunch and warm clothes, including scarves, gloves and hats, because the wind can be cold down by the river. Also a bucket or sack to collect rocks in. We have found serpentine, jasper, petrified wood and petrified bog, etc. in past years. The weather seems to be breaking for us and it will be good to see everyone who can make this trip.
Hope to see you there!
If you are coming from Osoyoos, call Dennis and Donna for a meeting spot in Keremeos.
