Approx. 20 minute drive beyond Hope on Hwy #1. If water is too
high, another location will be attempted.
Meet at Rancher's Restaurant Parking Lot

The coffee shop has a great rock display in the dining room area
- check it out.
Tools: rock hammer, bag, or bucket to carry items, and a squirt
bottle with water.
Clothing: bundle up with layers, as the gravel bars can be breezy
and cold. May also be rainy. Good hiking boots will reduce the
risk of twisting an ankle on the slippery rocks.
