A Full Day!

Looking throught the quakies

These rocks have Garnets in them..
Summit View

Yes its me again. After fishing for 3 days we are taking the last 2 days and exploring the countryside of Nevada. We started out our day finding garnets up in the mountains, it was free picking and plenty of them. Not very big in size, but what an experience it was to go searching rocks for garnets. After that we headed to a small town called McGill. This is an old mining town with several people still living there. we went into an old drug store that's now a museum now. When the lady passed away in 1985 she donated the building and all the stuff, so it was like walking back into time. The building was over 100 years old. Later on today we decided to do some geocaching on this dirt road that's called the success loop. We saw several deer grazing amongst the hills, trees and grass valleys were everywhere. It was a good full day and some nice memories to go home to. Well if I don't post for tomorrow I want to say HAPPY 4Th of JULY.
