Five club members camped at Pickard Creek for 3 nights, and were joined by new member Debbie for two days of exploring and collecting.
Friday was hot, and a dip in the Similkameen river preceded dinner (with a few finds), Saturday we chose the Tulameen river, and Sunday we explored several sites.
Finds included travertine, agate, and one precious opal find. More photos to follow.
Debbie showed us spectacular photos of Crater Mountain and some great specimens - probably too challenging a hike for many of us - 71 water bars in the first 5kms, plus a long hike.

On Saturday, September 12th, we will meet at the campsite at 9:30am. Planned as Pickard Creek FS Site, 6 km west of Hedley. In the unlikely event that Pickard is full, we will be on the Old Hedley road.
Look for Red Ford truck with Salem trailer, Black Toyota Tundra with Creekside Trailer, Blue Toyota Tacoma with Wolf Pup Trailer, Silver pick-up with camper. We will be camping Friday night.
On Sunday , September 13th, we will meet at A & W in Princeton at 9:00am.
Please bring a mask, in case you need to carpool to the sites.
All the usual stuff - water, sunscreen, hat, clothing layers, bag or bucket, packed lunch. We have prospective new members coming, so if you have an extra rock hammer or other tools, please bring them along.
Location of Saturday trip to be determined, once we know where the Princeton club is going on Sunday.
