Lavic Siding and Cady Mountains
The May trip is planned for May 14 and 15, 2022, at Lavic Siding. Saturday at Lavic and the Cady Mountains on Sunday. The Saturday portion at Lavic is specifically aimed at new or non-members that we recruit at the show. We will need some experienced rockhounds to join us, and we will try to pair up newbies with experienced rockhounds for educational purposes. Sunday we can choose some Cady sites. I will lead this trip, maybe I will wrangle a co-leader for the Cady's part.
The campsite is in the bowl at lavic Siding. It is accessible by all vehicles if driven carefully. To get there, exit 140 East at Hector Road, turn right at the end of the exit, and then left (east) on National Trails Hwy (Old RT 66). Go a little over 9 miles, and the road makes a sharp left turn across the freeway. Do not make this turn, instead turn right onto the dirt road, this is Lavic Siding road. Take the middle fork for a half mile, then turn left and go down a small hill into the bowl to the camp. There will be Searchers signs to help you. This is a dry camp, bring everything you need. Don't forget sunscreen and lots of water, your hat and rock tools. The weather could be hot, be prepared. Saturday night we will have a potluck for those who wish to participate. There is good collecting at the campsite for small tumbling size pieces of jasper.
Saturday' trip should be accessible by most vehicles if driven carefully. If you show up at camp in your low slug sports car we will find you a ride with a beefier vehicle. Sunday's trip will require a high clearance vehicle.
Trips will leave from camp at 0830 both days.
Field trips should resume in September, unless the club takes a trip to a location that has cooler, summer temps, Utah/Idaho?Oregon? Watch this page for notices, and the Slab.
