A Traveler and his Cat exploring America.

 On a walk across the rocky landscape I found a crystal.  There are a few places about four miles north that have crystals to be found more easily.  I just have never seen any around where we currently are.  This is a good time of the year for finding them.  The sun is lower on the horizon.  You look in the direction of the sun and if lucky will see something sparkle far off in the distance.  Then I walk towards it never taking my eyes off the shine.  This means some stumbling over rocks along the way.  This makes me wonder as does many things, “Why just this one out here all by itself?”  Well it isn’t because the area has been picked clean by others as no one walks about in the middle of the desert like I do.  There most likely are others lying about but they are just beneath the surface and haven’t been exposed by rain and wind yet.  It is a half an inch (is that 1.5cm?) long.
