Spring Time Rock Hounding

Spring Time Rock Hounding

Spring has always been my favorite time to go rock hounding. The air is starting to warm up, but it's still cool enough to be out during the afternoon.  The cloud coverage can be quite beautiful and the flowers are starting to bloom.  Lizards can be found basking in the sun and the birds serenade you.  Winter winds and rains will have uncovered new treasures to be discovered. It is the perfect opportunity to grab a rockhounding guide and explore the desert!

Here comes the Spring!

Here comes the Spring!

Spring is upon us.  It is a great time to shake off the winter cold and get out to rock hound!  We have had allot of rain that should have stirred up some new mineral finds in those old favorite places!   As always, be aware of your footing and your surroundings.  Stay safe and share your finds with us! Happy rock hounding!
