Collecting Memories

Some of my favorite memories are of rock hounding with my husband.  Rock hounding has been a hobby of mine since I was able to pick up a rock and ask "what is this?"  Even if those around me said "a rock" I knew that there was more, the swirling colors, the sparkling shimmer had to mean more than just a rock.  I was right.

I have spent many hours studying gems and minerals, the land, maps etc. to find some of my best treasures.  But nothing can compare to the memories that I created with my husband.  I will cherish the panoramic mountain views, rushing rivers, and silent deserts hikes over any gem or mineral we found.

One such adventure that we took was to the Mohave Desert.  Not only did we find a wonderful collection of agates and opalite; we hiked in the Mohave Desert.  How many people can say that?
