An unexpected find.
« on: October 07, 2017, 02:35:09 PM »

The other day i was back in the woods behind my house with my family hunting for mushrooms. I stepped in between two cedar trees and looked down and thought to myself no frickin way..till i reached out and picked it up. No creeks anywhere nearby.i wonder how it got there and if its worth digging some dirt to look for more.rps20171007_143436.jpg

Crows and Ravens do pick up shiny things to look at or even hide in nests........

I have had ravens steal lots of beach agates. They will even take them out of the bucket and line them up to decide which they take away.

You're lucky, here they just spread the garbage around.

Nice little find! Did your area see any glacial activity?

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

I honestly have no real idea about glacial activity in the area. mt rainier is about a 2 hour drive from me give or take.
