Hunting Sunstones in Plush

Last week Dominic and Mike went out to Plush to pick sunstones with Grandma and Grandpa Tighe. It's 36 miles to Lakeview to Plush, then another 26 on gravel roads to the public collection site (two miles past Nowheresville). Probably a little too much washboard than the Toyota (and Grandma and Grandpa), but we made it!
We picked a whole bunch of sunstones (the state gem of Oregon) while there, and they are currently with the Idaho Tighes for polishing. The gems are semi-precious at best, but really cool, and they make jewelry from them here locally.
