                                    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

they're 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
