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!!
