Field Research: Climbing Mt. Whitney

Scout Regalia Reel 03: Mount Whitney Sunset from Scout Regalia on Vimeo.

While one half of SR was gem hunting, the other half (Ben) was climbing Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States. An amazing climb with amazing views. Check out the time lapse video that Ben made of the sun setting over the ridge leading to Mount Whitney.

Field Research: Gemorama 2012

California is full of amazing and weird wonders. One of them is an annual event out in Trona, CA (population: 18) called Gem-O-Rama, and it's as amazing as it sounds. It's a gem-ing event complete with field trips, mining excursions, pancake breakfasts, and a "Blow Hole" trip that involves the US Navy blowing up a muddy lake so people can scour for hanksite, halite, and other gems.  Half of SR (Makoto) road tripped it out there with the lovely Kate Miss and Laure Joliet this year, and we have a feeling it will be a bigger event next year!

The Autry Center

A graphically written Emancipation Proclamation

Crazy mineral prospecting map
In the many years we've lived in Los Angeles, we've never been to the Autry Center in Griffith Park.  On the Smithsonian Museum Day this year, we finally checked it out.  A real treat with lots of great work from the Southwest and well curated rotating exhibits. Highly recommend it!
