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 camped here at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort and what a beautiful place to stay. The Management and Staff are very courteous and helpful and the resort and facilities are absolutely immaculate. We thoroughly enjoyed our camping experience and are looking forward to returning.
