Re: looking for flint or other knappable materal

Tom try the area just south of Hatch. There is some good material there. most will be small but plenty good enough for points.
You can find ryolite that is workable, silified sandstone that will work ok but not as good as Hixton. You can also pick up coral and chalcedony.
and that area is real close to you.
If you check with the rock dealer there in El Paso you can pick up some good rock and they have plenty of good obsidian. I would check with them first because that may be less expensive than gas but not as much fun as looking for your own rock.
