The Texas Road Runners' Rock & Fossil Hunting Sites In Texas

I've been following the many sites in a couple of rock hunting books for Texas (Such as Gem Trails of Texas by Brad Cross and Rockhounding Texas by Melinda Crow) and those I have gone on field trips with in the clubs I have been a part of.  Included is the good, the bad and the ugly of those sites.  Note : My maps are not to scale!  Also, I saw another guy do the same type of page for Oregon and charging people.  So suck it up now for I may do the same since I am now a poor, starving college student again.  Enjoy!
