Carpooling is recommended when possible. Rain can cause a trip to be canceled, but it's best to show up if you think there's any doubt. Morning trips will be over by lunchtime—plenty of time to come back and linger at the Show or attend one of the in-house geological presentations that will be happening at 1:30pm every day. A rock hammer and bag or bucket is suggested for collecting. And it’s important to bring drinking water! Remember: rock collecting is inherently hazardous! It is important to pay attention to your surroundings! Silver City’s elevation is 6000ft. If you are coming from a lower elevation, take it slow and drink lots of water!
