    Well, here are a few pics from my last winter trip. Some times you have to pay the price for what you love. It was in the 20's, cloudy and windy. The sun almost came out, the temp did get up in the 30's and the wind did slow down. And then the rocks came out to play. I will post more specimens on my flickr page. Not trying to use the site as an advertisement as I do not have enough to sell right now if I wanted to. No, this stuff is not Owyhee by any means. But Deer Sky jasper has some really unusual patterns and I love the swirls. The colors can be mind blowing, almost purple, blues, gray and more. Yep, I know I have been blessed.

It's fascinating that volcanic ash falling on a pond/lake could be so beautiful.
