Rock Hounding in Sierra County..Adventures by Jack

At the Alpine, Texas rock and gem show, at which I was a dealer, a customer named Paul who lived in Truth or Consequences (TorC) told me about several spots east of the Rio Grande across from TorC. He had found moonstones at one spot, and a fluorite mine at another. He had also found a mountain lion at the fluorite mine, so I had bought a 12 gauge shotgun to take with me just in case. Normally, I would check out the Gem Trails of New Mexico spots near by, and there are several, but time was short and I did not.

We had a wonderful experience staying at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort. The staff is truly friendly, hard working, knowledgeable and helpful. The resort is extremely clean and well run. We are sure the owner must be very proud of your accomplishments.
