Fort Deseret Entry

Jon on top of the mountain



On our way to search for sun stones we stopped by the old Fort Dessert. There is not much there, but it was still very interesting. The girls thought it was a huge house with tiny windows!

We found Sunstone Knoll and then began our search for stones. Jon, Kristina and the girls marched up the hill so they could work down. As I was to learn, there stones are just laying on the ground. All we had to do was bend over and pick them up. We came away with quite a haul.

After lunch we drove clear out to Topaz Mountain. Our search for garnet was cut short by a torrential rainstorm that quickly turned into a flash flood. It was definitely entertaining trying to get off the mountain.

Until next time........
