utah: Pumkins, Pumkins and More Pumkins! - 09/22/09 10:13 AM
I was delighted to come across this yard full of pumpkins in Orem, Utah.  
 
 
  I took some photos  and then of course I had to buy a few. Some of them had warts on the outside which added some extra personality.
 
The children were drawn immediatley to the unusual warted variety. 
 
All that orange was irresistable.

utah: Rock Pick Legends Rock Shop..Check It Out! - 05/16/08 12:48 AM
I ran into the Rock Pick Legends Rock Shop in Salt Lake City  just before they closed on Wednesday  to pick up some polishing grit for our tumblers and ended up buying a great deal on used polisher, grinder and saw set combo. Check out their website on equipment and rocks they offer.  There are some fun rocks to look at in their store location.
My husband started working with lapidary equipment when was younger and now he is finally getting back to the hobby.  We have collected some wonderful rock specimens and hope to do some cuts and polishing soon.

utah: Treasure Hunting.. New Group - 04/27/08 10:58 AM
The new group Treasure Hunting has been added for the members that like to hunt for Treasures in their area and beyond.  Whether it is Rocks, Gems, Fossils, Shells, Antique Bottles or Relics let us know what, how and where you find them.
My serious Treasure Hunting days began on Sanibel Island searching for shells, then doing shell art and on then on to the Peace River for fossils. (Those to be featured on posts to come)
We have added leaf fossils in Utah, agates, petrified wood and various rocks that we have yet to identify.  This soon becomes addicting. I can actually get … (13 comments)

utah: Pheasant Run Estates Vernal Utah - 04/22/08 10:43 AM
I have been working with the Pheasant Run Estates Development in Naples City, Utah which is located with Vernal, Utah.
The first phase is 37 lots rangeing from .21 acre to .5 acre.  The total project will be 151 lots. 
The new plans are to have homes built by Fieldstone which has many of their own projects on the Wasatch Front and also other states.  Their homes offer more square footage for the price which is needed here at this time.  We need more economically priced homes and even rentals.  Rentals are in demand and the rents are high.
This is a great subdivision for someone moving … (6 comments)

It is not too late and not  so late that you do not need  to worry about ice dams on your roof.  In Vernal, Utah we are starting to thaw and although people have been having trouble during the snow storms it is now more of a worry with the spring thaw.  Our snow fall has exceed the average.

Here is the site for information I would like to pass on.https://entp.hud.gov/idapp/html/hicost1.cfm

utah: 4 Wheeling In Uintah County - 03/02/08 02:28 AM
A great adventure is 4 wheeling in the Uinta Mountains or Ashley National Forest just North of Vernal, Utah.  One of our goals is to try all 40 miles of the Outlaw ATV Trail.  Named because we are Butch Cassidy Country.  The trail has easy to very hard sections and you can come and go off of pieces at different locations.  Taking a piece at a time we have ridden most of it.  Just the best fun!  We have a few hard spots to tackle but I think we can get it done this next summer season.  Come join in the … (0 comments)
