This year's Deming Gem and Mineral Show ( http://www.thedgms.com/RoundUp/2014%20Flyer%208x11.pdf ) is March 6 - 9, Thursday to Sunday.

So, on this Saturday we will hike the Rockhound State Park on the west slope of Little Florida Mountains, look for agates and quartz crystals. Once you get tired of hiking and rock hunting, you may relax on the beach in your bikini! (We're not making this stuff up. According to the official State Parks Website, there IS SWIMMING BEACH! http://www.stateparks.com/rock_hound_state_park_in_new_mexico.html?)

The trail in the park is only 3 miles, and it should make a hike doable for any level of hikers.

The next step is visit the Fair, window shop the gems. And then, find a local place to eat and drink.
