K&C Traders . They sell silver jewelry which I can afford and I found a nice pair of inlay teardrop earrings. They are made of Opal and purple Aventurine from South Africa and pink Astorite from right there in Silverton.
Astorite is from a mine that was owned by John Jacob Astor IV who went down with the Titanic in 1912. The entrance to the mine was dynamited upon his death, but someone later re-opened the mine and discovered this pink stone. After analyzing it, it was discovered that it was something new. Traces of gold and silver run through it. It is only found in Silverton.
North of Ouray, we headed West at Ridgeway crossing the Uncompahgre River. To our left we followed the northern edge of the San Juan Mountains, running into a bit of rain until we turned left at Placerville headed toward Telluride.
We made one stop at the Keystone Hill Overlook for me to get out and snap a picture. Before we knew it, we were at the turn that bypasses Telluride. The rest of the landscape was familiar since we had just been there two days ago.
Another 45 minutes and we were back at Priest Gulch. David took a nap and then took the time to tear down camp since we will be leaving in the morning. There will be no campfire tonight. The rest of the evening will be for relaxing before our two days on the road home.
It has been a great vacation! And last night St. Anthony finally found the trailer keys for us! They miraculously appeared in the drawer under the bench for the dining table. We had no need to open the drawer until I told David I never looked there for matches before we bought some and that I bet we would find matches in there. Sure enough, we found matches, and tucked in the bottom of the drawer next to muffin cups were the missing trailer keys. Come to find out from David, he saw another shooting star last night! God is GOOD - all the time!
