John Rakowski and Steven Veatch took the Lake George Gem and Mineral Club’s Pebble Pups out in the field near Taryall, Colorado on March 18. This kicked off the 2017 fieldtrip season for the club’s Pebble Pup group. The parents enjoyed lively discussions while the Pebble Pups scoured the countryside looking for specimens.
