Geodes near Hanksville, UT

When I was a small boy I used to go to Hanksville to hunt geodes. I would now like to take my grandchildren there but do no remember where we found these wonderful geodes. Can anyone help me?

I have found geodes in a variety of different places near Hanksville, but never in any great abundance at any one location. Do you recall finding a lot of them in one specific area, or was it more random in nature?

As I recall there were a lot of them in one location. We found them in a formation in the sides of the badland hills. It seemed to me that we took of on a road by the airport and wound our way down into the area where they were located. It was a primitive road. We parked the pickup at the bottom in kind of a flat area and then walked up the sides of the hill.
