ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT:  SPRAY BOTTLE!!   Be sure to bring a water spray bottle!  Some of the rocks may be covered with dust and grime.  What's behind the dirt?   Great clumps of pyrite?  Water-clear calcite?  Even a seasoned rockhound would never know...unless you spray them down the water...some attendees from last year brought a whole bucket full of water and washed their specimens on site.  For this location, water will be very helpful!
