That's spectacular and red too! Harvest plenty while you can. I can hear the thundering crowd coming for it.

Thanks, it’s in quite steep country, but I can take my old 4wd 3/4 of the way, it’s only about 1 mile from my house.

I'd say that's worth the trip. Great looking rough.

Iron reds in jasper become more saturated like this when the particle size is very small. Nice.
