Pics of Vacation
Anyway, I am posting a few pics here though :D ( I know, but it's a few compared to the `150 or so I wanted to post, lol!)
I can't emphasize enough how much I hate this frickin' dirt road. It leads up and down the Pinos Altos mountains, going well over 6000 feet up, and it's ONE lane with little space on the sides to pull over here and there. And I had nightmares the night before and after this damn thing. Been on it before, and it's the only way to get to the mines where the fluorite is. Video of me bitching is up at Flickr.
Reward for the hike up Upper Little Dry Creek, a gorgeous waterfall
I don't know what kinda rock it is, but I had to pop it open. Was cool!
But, we found gorgeous fluortine at the old mines. Here's green and purple :D
