ROCKHOUNDING AND ADVENTURE TRIPS

March 2017

In the past most years I drove or flew out to one of the large gem shows such as Tucson, Quartzite, or Denver. These days I typically go every three years, given the time and expense of these trips. This adventure involved 6,125 miles of driving over 26 days. The main two reasons for the trip were to buy gift shop items for the museum at the Tucson Show as well as speaking at the Albuquerque Gem and Mineral Club. In addition, I visited several geologic sites to take photos for possible future books. I went to Palo Duro Canyon State Park (southeast of Amarillo, TX), Carlsbad Caverns, Saguaro National Park, Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and Antelope Canyon. I feel extreme gratitude that I am able to take a trip like this.
