Creek Walking and Geode Finding




There's a trail at a local park that automatically brings me peace when I am there.  Being surrounded by the nature of it all is so calming.  I especially like to take a walk along the creeks within the area.  Rushing water within the small waterfalls is one of my favorite sounds.

A couple weeks ago I went with some friends along the creeks and discovered that one can find geodes there.  If you look for certain patterns and textures of rocks, you can determine if it is, in fact, a geode.  You can see what they look like on the inside by smashing it open against other rocks.  I picked up several and added them to my collection at home.

Do you like to take nature hikes?
Do you collect rocks or geodes?

I've never even thought to look for geodes. I probably walk by them all the time and have never noticed. So cool that you found so many at the creek!

I have no idea what to look for when searching for geodes, but I have a daughter that would LOVE to go on a geode hunt. Maybe when it is not 100 degrees outside we will do just that! Yours are very cool.

I love nature hikes. My husband used to find arrowheads when he was growing up - on his property.
