coming in on 16 from Regina, down to Glendive, along I94 to Billings, then I90-Livingston,Bozeman,Butte,Anaconda,Missoula, I15 to Helena, great Falls and points in around all of these I think, and any other place we maybe directed to if we are lucky, not sure where else my navigator has planned but I did hear of the possibility of a zip-line, a cave or two and of course food, plus going back to Gem Mountain to do some fun sapphire hunting, did it the last time and it was alot of fun. The book I was referring to is Rockhounding Montana, which does give you some old locations areas but they are now private land or a strip mall LOL, it at least gives you an approximate idea what you may find in an area, which we kinda need as we still new to this (5 years) and we're still stepping on top of what we're looking for as we are not sure what it looks like in the wild ura

Yes Harmon's is a must stop as every time we are there they were either moving or closed, plus it would be nice to finally meet them as they are great friends with many in our rock club, Prairie Rock and Gem in Regina,Sk.

I'm assuming you are referring to Makoshika State Park?  Yes it is quite amazing there, between the wife and I we usually end up taking at least 300-500 pictures between us there, gotta love digital.
