What a fun time!! We went home with 7 buckets of geodes, all sizes. It is a wonderful family event. Kids of all ages will enjoy hunting for the geodes or just picking them up off the ground. We can't wait to go back again.

I have gone with my mother for several years. We can't wait to go again this year! One year, even found a fossilized crinoid! Loads of fun! Mike and his team are fantastic!
