I'm back to talk rocks, as promised. Most of the new additions to my collection are from our hikes, but we also took a tour through the geology display at the University of Nevada, Reno and in the hallway they had a "Free Rocks" box (exciting, right?). The yellow one in the top pic is my favorite from there. In the middle pic you can see new mixed with old, but that lime green moss is from the trip to Tahoe. It was absolutely everywhere and I still can't believe the color! The painting I'm working on seems to have a mineral feel to it that fits in.
Since everything seemed to be mountain and rock related this trip, I had a running soundtrack of the Decemberists going through my head, with this number topping the chart most often. I just love them.
