It’s All About The Gram

An upcoming road trip will take me to Boron, California to stop in at Desert Treasures, if they are open. On the outskirts of Boron, the Rio Tinto Borax Mine Visitor Center is next and then on to Barstow to visit the Desert Discovery Center to view The Old Woman Meteorite. Then over the Tehacapi Pass to Bakersfield.

Next day to Shark Tooth Hill and The Ernst Quarries, next to Randsburg, and then on to Ridgecrest to visit Minerals Unlimited.

North after that to Death Valley, then east to Beatty, and then a drop back down to Las Vegas. I will be posting photos along the way if I have cell coverage.

If you are not on Instagram, consider joining. It’s all about the gram.

The Forty-Mule-Team at The Rio Tinto Mine Near Borax, California

A life sized, authentic in every detail, Forty-Mule Team in fiberglass. Make sure to stop into the Rio Tinto Borax Mine when you’re near Boron. That’s on Highway  58, heading to or away from Bakersfield in Kern County. No public tours but a free and friendly information center. They even give away free samples of borate minerals.
