Re: Rockhounding at McDonalds Ranch Central Oregon?
There are two ranches, one has thundereggs and the other petrified wood (petrified, agatized, or opalized Meta Sequaya). The All Rockhound Pow Wow Club has a show on the 4th of July weekend at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, Madras, OR. There are field trips all five days of the show to various ranches in the area, including field trips to both of the McDonald Ranches. The ranches charge $1 a pound (at least the last time we went). You need to join the Pow Wow club to go on field trips, the cost is $7.50 each or $15 a family. A link to their bulletin is http://rockhoundstation1.com/pdfs-etc/Powwowbulletin2010Pages1-6.pdf
