I’m quickly becoming a fan of Pelican Point. I guess you might be able to go anywhere in Utah and see this kind of mineral diversity–I don’t know. But due to the close proximity of the place, I have been able to visit it a number of times and investigate some really great collecting sites.…

It was a beautiful Saturday, so we decided to take a few friends out to go fossil hunting. We packed a picnic in the cooler, hopped in the car, and set out for Sanpete Valley. I had heard that you could go just about anywhere in the Wasatch Range and find decent fossils, so assumed…

Now that the warm season is starting, we’re going out as often as we get an opportunity. Awhile ago we took a trip down to Mellor Canyon in Sanpete County. I had heard that there was quartz there, and I wanted to check out Yuba Lake on the way, so we hopped in the car…
