I never thought we would be able to top last years roundup, but we did! Members began rolling in on Sunday afternoon to set up camp and settle in for a fun week of rockhounding.

LA Ray and his wife Cheryl's camp.

By Monday afternoon we almost had as many campers as we did at the end of the week last year, and we were just getting started!

Tuesday morning the campers got a visit from one of my neighbors.

Wednesday morning was the official start of the roundup. Our first visit was to the Little Pine Garnet Mine in Madison County, NC.
