Pahrump

We are in Pahrump.
Last Monday, March 1 we hitched up the horses and moved here to Nevada Treasure RV Resort in Pahrump, NV. We were here last October & November and liked the park and area in general. Teddy has already been scouting the area for rocks. She contacted some local "Rock Hounds" and learned that opals could be found near here. She has been out twice but so far no opals ;-(.
She did, however come back with some nice photographs.

This is the area that she scouted yesterday.
That little white dot in the upper right is our truck.
(NOTE: click on photos for larger view.)







No, that is not snow.













She said that in the cliff faces there were several holes or caves similar to this.










This interesting seam of black ran right through this highway cut. No idea what it is. A little help, Laurie?

(5 days later identified as Obsidian by a local rockhound.)








Looking out from the mouth of one of the cave entrances.















Another hole in the wall!














She did come home with another bucket of rocks though.     Oh well...whatever makes her happy!        
And she gave me some bacon for breakfast this morning proving the old adage, "A happy wife makes for a good life".  (smile)
