James Flynn, right, gives pointers to Dan Newbauer of Apple Valley, Minn., while they hunt for Kentucky agate in Station Camp Creek in Estill County. People from more than a dozen states went on agate hunts last week leading up to this weekend’s 25th annual Mountain Mushroom Festival in Irvine, which celebrates local morrel mushrooms and the agate found only in Estill and five surrounding counties.
