Yup sure is nice looking stuff.  The green I hear is the rarer of the agate from there.

yes sir, thats the place and this is the stuff. its changed alot since the fire some very ugly looking land now but makes for some good finds you might otherwise missed. Spring hunting should be at its best IF we get some good rain. I have some of that rare green stuff also..
