My father is coming from Utah to visit at the end of this month (I live in Carson City, NV). He is a disable Vietnam veteran and loves rock hounding. I am trying to find a location to take him to find blue agate (or any other colorful rocks, crystals or fossils for that matter). I have a four wheel drive vehicle, so road conditions are not an issue. The biggest issue is his walking. He wouldn't be able to climb up the side of a mountain or an area that is too rugged. Does anybody know of an a area that would meet the above criteria? I read of an area out by Austin that has this type of agate, but, cannot seem to find a location. Any area around Northern Nevada would be acceptable; however, he really wanted to find blue agate. I would be willing to pay for the information. I am not much of a rock person, but, my dad really enjoys it. We will not be taking everything in site or trashing the area we are at. I just wanted to spend some quality time with my father doing something he loves to do. I can be reached at 702 seven seven one 5 six 55. Text or call any time. Thanks for reading the post.
