    We went to the geode beds yesterday and had lots of fun. going out sucks as the road is bad and a bad pass at dugway pass as no guard rail and narrow and large dropoff. going there for the first time yesterday someone was probly scared coming down the narrow road just past the pass probly got scared and hugged the wall and stopped, i had to go around them and could have fell of the cliff with the truck. people following us said they were stupid to block the road scared or not. at the diggings really fun as found a giant one almost as big as a basketball. most are like birds eggs and up to orange. lots were broke when we found them but they still cut nice with my diamond saw. been collecting for many years but thought geodes were to commmon but some can be beautiful inside.

    For anyone who doesn't know what a Geode is, that kid in the picture is holding a lizard--not a geode.

    Just thought I'd clear that up. :)
