Our field trip for September will be the 29-30th in the Big Bear Lake area. Camping will be inthe historic Holcomb Valley near where Van Dusen Canyon Road, from Big Bear City,joins Holcomb Valley Road. This is a forestry campground so you will need the AdventurePass or equivalent.
This area is close enough to the San Gabriel Valley to be a one day affair. We will meet at 9 amSaturday morning at the “Discovery Center”, just west of Big Bear City, past Fawnskin, for ourhunting and gathering.
We will hike the .65 mile to the hill that has the beautiful clear quartz crystals laying about. Bringwater, shovel, small mesh screen, hat. Other possibilities for this area are the marble quarries, andthe Blue Quartz Mine, if it is not now the skeet range. Phil Terrio has other areas in mind also.Saturday night will be our pot luck dinner.Information and signup sheets will be available at our September 11th meeting.See you on the mountain:
