On the way home I decided to stop and poke around in a mineralogical rich area. After a winter as bad as this a lot of rock is often fractured or freshly exposed. The area of clay and sand you see bellow is a small pocket of quartz crystals. It was about the size of an orange and had some very nice specimens in it.
With temperatures rising again I will be out this weekend. Some streamer fishing is going to go down, and possibly a trip for suckers.
