Several times a year we take a trip somewhere to do something fun that is rockhound related. Maybe digging in a mine or on a claim or maybe attening a rock show or museum. Below is a list of places we have been or are going. If you would like to go on any of our trips with us, please contact us and let us know.

Antero, Chaffee County, Colorado,  Lake George area, Park County, Colorado and our claims in Arizona. If you are interested in digging on one of our claims, please contact us.
