Apache Tears – Superior, AZ
There will be no crying on this trip, Saturday Oct 28, to Superior, AZ for Apache Tears (obsidian).
The drive is 2hrs from Payson (cars okay) but the sites are easy to maneuver and the reward is pretty cool.
We are limited to 20 Rimstone Rockhounds (no guests this time – sorry). That’s not cars; it’s the number of people.
And, get this, we are the first clubs to visit this year – and there has been a lot of new rock added to our picking area.
Arranged by Rimstones member Jen Jordan, we will be with the Daisy Mtn and Pinal County clubs, too.
Are you ready for one of our club’s favorite and easiest places to hunt rocks?
