One of my friends #dogs crossed the #rainbowbridge today and it’s got me all choked up. Even though #wedontdeservedogs, just know they’re all waiting for us on the other side, looking forward to the next big #adventure.

“What draws us into the desert is the search for something intimate in the remote.” -Edward Abbey I need to run away to the wilderness, and I hate feeling trapped. It’s enough to make me go mad.

#WIP -Three of my Works In Progress projects. #Lapidary Class and my intro to #faceting #crystal in the middle. I’m super excited about my newest #craft. Now to ask #TeamCanon how to better focus my #CanonEOS T7i on light and dark objects in the same field. #Photography will by my first love, but these come in a close second! . . . #canonfanphoto #geology #gemsandminerals #rocksandcrystals #agate #quartz #geode #petrifiedwood #cabochon #hobby #handmade #diy via Instagram http://ift.tt/2EAmuRe

“Weary-Eyed” I think I found a #fossil ?!?! Found #Northwest of #Albuquerque, in the hills between #RioRancho and the Rio Puerco.

Last #rockhound find of the day is a weird one! I have no idea what this rock is, but the black parts are raised up like little veins (ewww, lol)! Anyone got any idea what I’ve got? Found #Northwest of #Albuquerque, in the hills between #RioRancho and the Rio Puerco. Normally find petrified wood, agates and #fossils out here. . . . #rockhounding #rockcollection #agate #rocksandminerals #crystals #help #geology #rockhunting #geologyrocks #nature #neverstopexploring #found via Instagram http://ift.tt/2EfBvLe
