CCRMC frequently arrange field trips to rock collection areas and mines - or participate in field trips arranged by the CFMS or AFMS. Some are day trips, other are overnighters, either with a nearby hotel/motel, or where a camper or tent is required.


Come One, Come All and Get Your Agate On!

December 14 Field Trip – 4 locations in the Mojave area

On Saturday, December 14 at 9 am, come to Justin Zzyzx’s place at 39184 Tami Road, Newberry Springs, to begin a day of collecting and Rockhound fun.

From highway 15, exit at Harvard Road, (20 miles from Barstow, 1.5 hours from the Cajon Pass) go left, turn left onto Barrett Rd and left onto Tami Rd. A new Circle K has been built, very nice! (Don’t be later than 9 am or we might have departed.)

I am the field trip Leader and Justin is the guide.

There will be four locations to visit, all featuring different styles of agates, jaspers, and opalite.

Easy collecting for all ages.

100% accessible for all car types.

TOOLS: Sturdy bags/buckets, hard rock tools (Hammer/pick), water spray bottle, safety glasses, and gloves. It may be wise to carry a first-aid kit. I also recommend a dust mask.

Bring extra money for BLOWOUT prices on slabs, minerals, and tumbled stones Justin is selling, and you can also buy copies of “Rockhound Barstow” directly from the author (Justin!)
