Ok..we walked for about an hour and when I returned to the car, Sharon and our new friends were already waiting. They invited us to their house to see their treasures and like any REAL Fairburn Explorer...we went. I am so Thankful for wonderful people who would share their enthusiasm of a good hunt. They ended up having some incredible agates and have several of their own Beautys featured on the latest Agate Book out in publication.
In one of the photos, it shows the Fairburn from a postcard that was the cover photo and the real agate in his hand.
We are going back Sunday..and just maybe we will actually go on a semi weekly basis now. Regardless if you are rock hunting or hiking, the Badlands of SD are something everyone should see at least once. It amazes me everytime I go there!!

When I finally get them home they always look so huge and have grown wide and glossy. This year the grass is drying too fast and the hoppers are really multiplying. If you look really hard you can see the girls, (dark spot on a point in the bay) They are still quite a ways away but you can understand my worry when the Big Baby bottle calf followed them one day and didn't come home till morning...all by herself and very very hungry. She stays here in the yard now with the other bottle calves. Gotta hand it to animals when they can figure things out and find their way home from this far out!!
Next clip is from standing on the ridge and trying to zoom in on the girls. Gives you an idea of the country I live in.
