Hey Nancie, you got a keeper there. Be careful, sometimes the white areas want to undercut or fracture.

Those are some nice looking agates! Sara, the kids and I had a blast on our first trip searching for Boley.  We found a few that might be classified Boley, all in all we went for the shotgun approach also and hit about everything that caught our eye and that we could carry.

I wish the weather would have been better so I could have met everyone.

The young ones all had  fun.  When you combine mud, hills and water,  kids have all they need.

Even though it was rainy, muddy and cold, I caught this picture on the way home.  Perfect ending for a fun day!

WOW! I didn't know Oklahoma had anything but red sandstone in it and red mud to go with it, who would have thunk it? That must be some old weathered out rock as flat as that state is.

West Oklahoma does have that red dirt and red mud.  East Oklahoma is like Arkansas.  Hills, chert and oil wells.

I was in Oklahoma City for a while and had friends near Tulsa too and down in the Kiamichi Mountain area, boy was that primitive compared to the rest of the state. They had rocks down there for sure, moonshine, mules on the road, horses and cattle too and crazy drunks that would fight you for the slightest provocation, dangerous place the Kiamichi Mountains.

There was plenty of red mud in my boots, before we got done!

We are all such a fun(ny) group.  Takes so little to get us excited.  I can't imagine what we would be like in one of the western states.  We would be out there with flash lights all night long.

WOW! Great find. There isn't a better feeling than finding something and getting home to cut it open. My hat is off to you.
