“Cross your fingers rock”…well, it almost looks like it. The formation is located in Dragoon in Texas Canyon area.
Ah, yes. Here it is in all it’s beauty. The 49’ers had trouble finding it but I found this gold nugget just sitting on the ground waiting for me. I am indeed rich, rich, I say. (Scoffing at the nay-sayers that tell me it’s just a rock. They want my gold.) Can’t wait until I get to the assay office.
(UPDATE: It is a rock. A purdy white one but just a rock!!)
This is the Lavender Pit Mine in Bisbee, AZ. The Bisbee Community Swimming Pool is at the bottom of the pit. Such beautiful, clear, light blue water….hey, I’m just reading this from the tourist brochures.
More of the rock formations around Texas Canyon in Dragoon. And kids, do not climb on the formations. These pictures were taken by a pro doing what pro’s always do….nothing. Stay away from the hard places or you may be between a rock and a hard pl…….forget it. Kids never listen.
I am originally from New England and joined the US Navy after high school. Trained as an Electronics Technician (avionics) working on computers and computer-controlled systems. Approximately 23 years later I retired from the US Navy and flip-flopped between TN and MA before settling in AZ in 2005 where I met the greatest woman ever.
