    1. Yes, and geodes are even cooler when they are sliced open.

  4. When the kids were small, I use to help the hunt rocks and fossils. However, I haven't done that in years. I do think there are many interesting rocks to be discovered, but I usually just leave them where they lay anymore for someone else to enjoy. Thanks for bringing back a fond memory. Stop by my place to link up, if you wish! Have a fototastic day!

  5. Interesting. You know, I've never thought about 'rock hunting'. And slicing them open. But I've seen them in museums, they can be very, very beautiful.
