Thanks to friends, Lynnette and Joan, for their hospitality while I was in Traverse City over night. Thankfully I made it safely, despite the winter driving conditions. At times there was snow, freezing rain, and sleet. Most of the roads were snow covered and slippery. But I made it...
While at my friend's house, I captured this view out my bedroom window.
Over the years, Lynnette has bought a lot of rocks and mineral art, including several awesome Ocean Jasper specimens. As many of you know, the Ocean Jasper deposit in Madagascar has been mined out since 2006.
