Location Type: Public Access
Details: I hear that you can find a good fill of geodes at Palo Duro Canyon which is southeast 27 miles of Amarillo, Texas.  One source is from http://hubpages.com/hub/Must-see-state-parks-in-Texas.  You should ask a ranger of an information office there to find out where to get them.  Some minerals associated in the geodes are quartz, dolomite, aragonite, calcite, celestine, and gypsum.
Directions: Go south from Amarillo on I-27 and turn off near Canyon, TX, and go east towards the Palo Duro Canyon State Park.  They have a map on their website: http://www.palodurocanyon.com/contact.php
Google Map: (The GPS marker is only marking the nearest city.)
