Field Trip #3 – Lake Sam Rayburn
A trip to Lake Sam Rayburn in east Texas was our next destination. Being a bit further than the previous trips, the plan was to spend the night with Mimi and Papa in Jasper.
The trip takes about 4 1/2 hours. After a bit of unwinding (playing with the dogie, Jasper), Mimi gave a lecture on some basic geology and the classification of minerals. Then we were off to the lake prepared with our own survey and classification guides. Right off, Charity discovered a very nice piece of quartz. The rest of the exploration was a bit of a let down comparatively speaking.
Of course, swimming and playing in the sand was part of the experience as well. Everyone loves that part!
For all the great pix, take a look here.
