Re: Re: Re: looking for ellensburg blues and geodes...

There is a rock shop in Ellensburg that may have information for you. There is a ranch north of Ellensburg that allows collecting for a fee, but it has been heavily hunted over the years and thus there is very little chance of finding much of value. Most of the areas that used to be available for hunting have been bought up as ranchettes and now posted and off limits to anyone. Most of the land owners in the area are rather touchy about anyone gaining access to their land so the chances for getting access to the traditional hunting area on the Upper Green Canyon drainage north of town is doublful. Andy Beeman, the owner of Beeman's Rock Shop outside of Selah Washington has a rather nice collection of blues and sells both finished stones and rough. Every once and a while a local with contacts for hunting brings material into him. There is also a jewelry store in Yakima that carries blues and another one in Ellensburg. Hope that helps.
