Rockin’ the hood!

I don’t know if I ever mentioned…We live on a mine! Todd’s Backyard sits on the east side of Freeport Copper and Gold. When the city decided to improve our main thorough fare, we had heaps of rock piled along side the road. It looked like piles of  brown dirty rock. Our good neighbors, George and Eileen, suggested that we take a hammer and go investigate. Armed with hammers and a wheelbarrow, we journeyed to the road, determined to uncover something amazing. We were not dissappointed!  Below the brown, mud encrusted debris, we uncovered treasure!!….

I bet there’s gold in them, thar rocks!

If not gold…beautiful color for sure!

Turquois?

Azurite?

One of these days, we are going to prospect in the wash that runs behind Todd’s Backyard! Even if we don’t find gold, Todd’s already developed a treasure above ground! But it’s always fun to find what might lie below!
