Re: Hope area information?
i know its too late to point out any locations in the hope areanow that it is sunday morning. There is a trail that heads up to Foley peak, not an easy hike but reports of the best optical quarts is found along the creek going up the side of the mountain. There is a pull-off on the Hope side or the hydro station along Hyw.#1 that looks like a road. I have only been told about this area and have seen the crystals, yhey are nice. Reports on the hike vary from a hard 2 hr to a 6hr hike up.I would have gone there this year but have a hand injury. It hasnt stoped me to much, i went up behind boston bar on friday and made it to the top of a mountain that is covered in Blue Banded Agate. I managed to pick 20lbs of heafty chunks and enough small ones to fill a tumbler. You can get bach to me and directly and I kan help you to get pointed in a good direction next time. there is a group of us un the area always on the hunt for the motherload. Keep your stick on the ice. mike
