Hey there Desert Lovers, here’s our plans for February. We will take a trip out to the Arivaca area. A couple in our group have located smoky quartz crystal specimens at an old mine. We will be leaving the clubhouse at 8:00am on Thursday, Feb. 12th. Be sure to bring your equipment and include rock hammers, if you have them, for breaking open the rocks to look for the crystals. We will be out for a while so be sure to bring a snack/lunch (your preference) and always water. Also dress in layers as Arizona February temps can be anywhere from the 40’s to the 80’s. Great time to get out there before the REAL heat hits. The roads should be good – based on the previous trip out.
