Re: Question for Bob!
All my rockhounding in Utah has been with a camera. The Monument Valley, Canyonlands and Arches vacinities are among my favorite places there, although there is so much in Utah I have yet to see and appreciate first hand.
While I've still got an eye out for potential lapidary material, I've already acquired more mineral and petrologic specimens than I will ever have room to display. Anymore I am increasingly interested in visiting, photographing and researching interesting geology than collecting rocks.
When I do go exploring for potentially collectible rocks, nowadays it is more times than not off somewhere in Mesozoic Era strata...
Keep on Rock'n!
