Rock Hounding

One of our day trips took us to a rock quarry just south of a nearby town. The rock shop associated with it had quite the display of unusual and semi-precious stones that could be found there.... including fossils.

My kids managed to find alot of ROCKS. Well, maybe one that *could* be a plant fossil... and my husband scored a piece of fossilized wood.... but mostly it was just a fun day climbing a huge pile of stones and collecting 30 lbs of new rocks to add to the kids' collections. Yay.

Nice way to spend a cloudy day though.... kept everyone busy for a while and the kids loved thinking they were finding priceless treasures!
