Looking for Petrified Wood

We drove back to one of our favorite spots in the Lake Mead Recreation Area to seek out a spot where Steve and I found petrified wood last time we were in the area. Fortunately the hills were somewhat dryer so we were able to walk up into the wash to look for interesting rocks.
Here are Steve and Dave walking in the wash.
There are all kinds of veins of rock running through the hills across the washes.

Steve took the high route to look for the spot where we found Breccia, cool rocks with multicolored inclusions. He found the place and we met him there. Dave and I walked up the wash.

This last shot is from the moving car after lunch as we headed home.
