Back from Denver - got Engaged

I flew back from Denver in the morning, from my buying trip for the rock shop for the Christmas season. Todd took me out to a very special dinner at the Space Needle. That was a first for me, I am afraid of heights, I had to hold on tight in the elevator. Luckily the table was not too close to the edge. During the evening he proposed - it was so romantic, here is a picture of the beautiful ring. Alexanderite in the middle, with diamonds on the outside and emeralds surrounding them. Five stones - my birthday is the fifth month. The Alexanderite has gorgeous color change, and varies from green to light blue. Emerald is my birthstone. The perfect ring from the perfect guy. I am so happy.

Drusy Quartz - rock dig in Wyoming

In July I went to Wyoming with members of the rock club that I belong to. Following are some pictures from one of the many places we went to. This is a Site in Wyoming, that we got drusy quartz, some with blue drusy quartz and many more colors. The ground was covered with lichen of many colors and the scenery was gorgeous, but it was hot, windy and covered with mosquitoes.

Fish Fossil Quarry - dig in Wyoming

In July I went to Wyoming with members of the rock club that I belong to. Following are some pictures from one of the many places we went to. This is a Fossil Quarry in Wyoming, mostly fish fossils are at this site, but others as well. They charge $40.00 an hour per person to dig at this quarry, and it is not so easy. It was a good experience though.
