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!
