Jenell reports " we crossed I-25 to get to a dirt road that led us first to an area of small hills that had glacier-polished stones (small ones) just handy to pick up off the sandy ground. After about an hour at that location, we drove on further down the dirt road past a sand and gravel company location to the Caballo Hills area. I think it was the site of an old barite mine.
The caravan of cars stopped at that second location. There were huge boulders all along that road near the stop, all glistening with amazing colors and crystals. People set off on their own down ravines and up hills. Jeannine found one rock that had nice large crystals-within-crystals. There was one boulder-sized rock that was solid quartz. Everyone had a great time and some people picked up huge slabs to cart home."
