Rock Hounding

We made a trip to the Stillwell Ranch recently to hunt for some rocks. We knew very little about rocks but wanted to try to find some nice ones anyway.

Stillwell Ranch is located on Ranch Road 2627 right off of Hwy 385 South. Lots of history here and really a quiet place to camp close to the Big Bend entrance.

We had a great time. They charge by the pound and we brought back about $6.00 dollars worth. Best bargain around!!
