Found some interesting chunks of jasper near the Skokomish River, up on a cliff face.  I'm glad the rope held or I wouldn't be posting these:

Slabs dry (the black lines are healed fractures).  Most of it seemed pretty solid:



Slabs wet:




Thanks for looking.

Thanks Jeremy.  It came from a fairly large vein, but I won't go back until the weather warms up.  By the time I got back to the truck my hands were so cold/numb that I couldn't get the keys out of my jeans pocket for about 5 minutes.

I would be willing to go with you to help pack out and I have a 24 inch saw so if it can be carried I can cut it.....

Thanks Michael.  Do you have climbing gear?  If so, I'll keep you in mind when the weather warms up a little.
