The Best Day of Dean's Life

We joined the County's Junior Rock Club, and the summer is full of field trips. Last week, Luke took the older two to Silver City, about a 70 minute drive from here. It's past Eureka (Eur-ick-a, in local parlance. It's a drive I found incredibly spooky in its unpopulated-ness.  It's southwest of Payson.)  It's a known pyrite collection site, and the kids had a blast.  They didn't get home till well after 9pm, but they found particularly excellent specimens.

So cool! You all live in the best place for the kids to be "rock hounds." Glad the summer is turning out to be a lot of fun.

Hooray for the things you can find in the outdoors. Great for children to get interested in "outside" things. Love Opa.
