This is the heart of California's Mojave Desert and weather can be unpredictable this time of year so dress accordingly. We will be collecting Christmas Tree Agate.

From the meeting spot we will caravan north to the collecting location (4X4) is highly recommended. No sedans.

Bring lunch. This widespread field offers no shade. Gas and food available in Ludlow.

Waiver of Liability will be signed at the meeting spot.

Other materials at this site include agates and jaspers with sections of multi-shaded pink opal and other agates similar to Mexican Lace.

Stayovers may camp at a number of undeveloped sites or the hotel in Ludlow. Treat the desert with respect - tread lightly and pack it in/pack it out.
