I am an avid rockhound. I enjoy collecting rocks and minerals in different locations. I currently live in Montana so many of my adventures take place in Montana. This blog was created to record my rock collecting trips as well as give me a place to talk about my passion for rocks. Now I have a new adventure to talk about, full timing in a travel trailer with my dog Gypsy. I hope you enjoy my ramblings .
Please feel free to post comments, I'd love to hear from you.

Wickenburg, AZ Gem and Mineral Show

This past weekend was the annual Wickenburg Gem and Mineral show.  It was a good show especially for it being a small show in a small town.  There were lots of vendors, door prizes, silent auction, fluorescent display, best rock competition, and rock displays.  I was glad to see a variety of materials from the local to the more exotic.  The weather wasn't too bad, just a little chilly so that was good.  I'm not sure how many people were there but I saw a lot and parking was hard to find.  In all I had a good time, got to talk and look at many rocks, and got out of the house for the day.  If you are ever in this area when the show is going on then I'd say it's worth the stop.  I wouldn't drive from a long distance just to go to it though.  A few of the vendors I talked to said they will be in Quartzsite this year so I may see them again. 
I didn't get any pictures of the event so here's one of the desert just to keep the post interesting.  Enjoy.
