                                    Outing to collect Geodes

                         

                                Geodes from one of our outings in 2011

                                                     Southern Indiana

                     The creeks were 40% geodes as large as bowling balls 

                                                                    

                   These are photos from one of our outings a few years back.

                                              The geodes above will hardly

     fit into the white 5 gallon bucket their that large, and these are the ones we left.

       But we can only get into this place maybe once a year at best... Or maybe not.                                                 

                                                         Lots of Geodes

                                                 all photos by Jestin Kimmet

                                                              and myself

                                                          ____________     

                                                                Update

                      We may not be able to get back into this creek till much later
