Enjoyed the Nevada, Arizona, and Utah explores!


Recommended Posts

My husband and I have done quite a bit of exploring in NV, but not in the other 2 states.  We did quite a bit around Virginia City and Goldfield.  So very much miss going out there.  Colorado has become his new area to exploe.  Sadly I can not to with him as someone has to stay home and take care of the livestock.  Thanks for letting me relive those exploring days!  Since we live in the Laurel Mountains of PA, it is difficult to do day journeys to the west!  Enjoy the new videos also, but miss hearing EWUBob's and EWUEmma's banter!

He used to elk and deer hunt in CO and find interesting places.  Now, as he won't hunt alone as he his in his mid 70's, he is bidding on and researching property and OGM's.  Between the county's sales, he goes out to "lost" places.  He enjoys finding old mines, petroglyphs, and searching areas.  When we would go together, we would go to old mining sites and search tailings.  Also if we found a nice creek we would pay for gold!  Never found much gold, but we had fun.  We did a lot better gem finding in NV.

Yeah, it's all about being outdoors and having a good time! I use to search for gold a lot, but never did find any. Have you found much gold over the years?

Bob, only with my wedding ring!!!  😊😊  We did get a little (very) in Georgia.  

We usually find more gems. We have found opals, apache tears, turquoise, nice quartz, dinosaur bones etc.  These were found in NV.  In CO nice quartz.

My wife and Emma love rock hounding, but I have never really been able to get into it. I am the one who gets to carry all their big finds around for them. So I don't go rock hounding with them much anymore! 🤣

EwuBob, We have a saying, "you find, you carry"!  Need to try that.  Also when hunting we don't travel to far from the truck.  

I like that, that's how it should be.
