One for the Agate Hunters
<p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Howdy Cowpokes,</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I found this in a construction site right in the middle of the Twin Cities. Random piles of glacial soil being used for fill aren&#39;t the most efficient place to hunt agates, but sometimes you get lucky. Front and back in the pics below.

I spend tons of time wanderin

I spend tons of time wandering large road construction sites for work. I too have found many awesome agates weathering out of piles of overburden etc. Those pictured are great finds. plus bonus points for inventing a new word (embiggen)

Carpy Diem!
