Desert fun!

A few days ago Gary, Dave and I piled into Gary’s 2 seater truck and headed out into the desert southwest of Huachuca City. For years Dave has been telling me about an old mine where you can go and pick up buckets full of blue and green rocks. We finally decided to drop what we were doing for a few hours and go out and find some. It took over an hour to get out there on rough, rocky, unimproved desert Forest Service roads, but getting there is most of the adventure!

The blue rocks were difficult to find, seems like that’s what everyone else wants too. We still haven’t found out exactly what kind of rocks they are, Dave thought Chrysocolla. Anyone out there have an idea?

When we got back the moon was just starting to rise over the mountains.

We spent the rest of the evening playing football with Dizzy.

Dizzy's hoping for a football scholarship to the U of A.
