Rainbow inside reservoir

Fall Creek District, Lane Co., Oregon, USA

This rainbow was so bright it caused a white out on its right end. Never seen a rainbow you had to squint at. Beautiul day in the reservoir.

K7G-UVGChalcedony (Var: Agate)

Fall Creek District, Lane Co., Oregon, USA

Dimensions: 3.5 feet x 2.5 feet x 2.5 feet
Field of View: 8 feet
Weight: 120 lb

Here is a beautiful rather egg shaped piece of brecciated, orange, pink, purple, red, white, and brown agate from windfall ridge in the fall creek area. I had been waiting 2-3 years to have the gate open for logging to drive right up and pull this and about 400 more lbs out of a road cut at this location. I had to go up while log trucks were coming down but it was worth the danger to retrieve these massive agate boulders and their brecciated friends. Wheeeeheew!

view looking west from Chandler Mtn

Coyote Gulch Agate Locality, Chandler Mountain, Linn Co., Oregon, USA

View from top of Chandle Mtn looking West over calapooya river out into Willamette Valley. Clear agate is found at top of ridge, red agate on back side heading east. This spot can be spectacular if you go in the winter during an inversion. Often you are just at or ablove the fog line so it can be like looking over a white blanket with just a few ridges poping out.

NAC-HK0Quartz, Chalcedony (Var: Carnelian)

Chandler Mountain, Linn Co., Oregon, USA

A 4x2" section of altenating orange carnelian to quartz back to deep red carnelian finished off with a light druzy of quartz. Excellent color contrast with this piece. Collected in 2009 from the imfamous "salamander alley" as the tiny creek that these are dug out of is home to pacific giant salamanders that grow to 14" long. After diging out a 4 ft pit and it fills back in with water they enjoy a nice clear pool in the summer months to live.
