Our 2019 Show and how it looked:
Holbrook and Petrified Wood. We went to Frank & Rhonda Dobell's ranch and had a great time.
Fallon, Nv and the Wonderstone. Sept 27 to 29.
There was a whole lot of wide open space. When
you first arrive, it does not look like much. Sun baked rocks with desert varnish. After you start digging around and turning rocks over- you discover what is hiding.
Amazing the colors and definition. Sometimes
you find things you never expected >>>
We spent all day Saturday collecting and exploring. Tim & Dave, Donna & David went back to the site
for more Wonderstone. In the wash nearby, David was digging and came up with a beautiful agatized Petrified Wood chunk.
Sunday we stopped at Goldfield and looked around. The town was in very
sad shape the last several years. But, as the economy got better they have
cleaned and painted and repaired a lot. We got some pics of the Glass
Bottle House that has been there since early 1900.
Alpaca Farm Days- Oct 4 to 6, at Alpacas of the Southwest.
The Alpaca event starts on Thursday with setting up the 10 X 20 canopy and then the Members set up their tables. This year we had Jack, Paul, Minerva & John, Aleta & Ed, Deborah & John, and Gary & Mary.
The Event ran from Friday to Sunday. While everyone did well, by Sunday we were pooped. It gets a little hectic with trying to pack items away, break down tables, and then dismantle the huge canopy and get it in the trailer. Thanks to Paul and his son, Minerva, Deborah and John everything was done quickly.
Liz and Jorge from JOLT, who were in our Rock & Gem Show last year, were among the vendors.
There is always a lot to do and see at this event and everyone had a good time.
Thanks again to those who helped with the set up and tear down.
Back to Holbrook and the Dobell Ranch for more Petrified Wood. Oct 2019.
