Teepee Canyon Agate Beds
The Teepee Canyon Agate Beds are about 2 miles west of Jewel Cave National Monument. Take one of the Forest Service Roads to the North for about half a mile, and get out and start looking. We found several really pretty rocks in the area, but the agate pieces we found were small. We talked to others who told us of an agate the size of a canteloupe was found last year. That's rockhounding; some days you get lucky, other days you don't go home with much, but had fun anyway.
