mountain treasures


This is the kind of thing that happens in Colorado all. the. time. You're driving someplace, and you take a spontaneous turn just to see what's down there. And then you find yourself in a place like this. Colorado is full, full, full of goldmines i tell ya. That's how Robert + two friends + I found ourselves at this gem (harhar) of a place -- the Pikes Peak Rock Shop in Cascade, CO. (Look it up if you are ever in town -- just minutes from Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs!)

The shop is packed full of goodies -- rocks + minerals, Southwestern silver, and Native American crafted goods. We departed with a small dreamcatcher, and dingdingding! A Himalayan salt rock lamp! Which you might know I've been pining after. (I'll share more about the lamp later.)
