Rockhounding

A Fresh Start 2020

Posted by Keith Bergeron on

It’s going to be a great year!  

March 8th was a beautiful start to the 2020 rockhounding season.  After a busy winter of shows and stocking stores, it was well past time to get out and get in the dirt.  Jordan and I snuck out for a couple hours in Goffstown.  She found some beautiful beryl and I uncovered some nice garnets in mica and biotite.   This should be a very active rockhounding season as I am recovering well after a painful back injury.  I am going to blog after each trip this year and accompany each blog with pictures.  I am going to give Vlogging a try this year as I am purchasing a Go Pro in the next few weeks.  I will keep you up to date on all trips and let you know where you can log in to check out the Vlog.  This will hopefully be our most active season yet.  I hope you follow on this journey with us as we explore the beauty the earth has to offer.

Herkimer Trip Spring 2019

Posted by Keith Bergeron on

Our first trip out this year was with the Bishop Brady Rock and Mineral Club.  What a day we had.  There was a strong chance of rain but the weather held out in our favor.  We mined all morning and into the afternoon.  The club ran into some amazing pay as we were pulling beautiful specimens out continuously all day.  This was the single best day I have personally had at this location.  I cannot wait to share with you the creations that come from this find.  The season has officially begun.  :)

Getting Started in 2019

Posted by Keith Bergeron on

The 2019 rock hounding season is about to begin and we cannot wait for all that white stuff to go away in the New England area.  The buzz to get out there and get our noses in the dirt has been at a fever pitch the last few weeks.  This is the first of many blogs to come.  I will be sharing our family rock hounding experiences through this blog moving forward.  The opportunity to get out there, find some amazing specimens, and spend time with family is an absolute gift.  We hope that you follow us on our 2019...
