Snow? in Arizona?

As a young child I remember Arizona as being a place where you can find awesome rocks and precious stones. My girls have become collectors of rocks, especially Klai...so we HAD to find a mining town.We found Goldfield Ghost Town.

We thought...we just came from snow a little rain, we are OK. So we ventured out prepared for rain with trash bag ponchos and light jackets. The kids were STOKED!

We showed up to some seriously Arizona rain and the temperatures were dropping, it was a mighty cold day...even for us who came from Utah.

As we warmed up our bodies, we braved the cold. And just as we were leaving the store....it started to snow!  Holy crap Batman, what is it doing snowing in Arizona. It was unheard of there. The workers said they get snow once every couple of years, we are just some of the fortunate ones...I guess.

We ran from store to store finding shelter and seeing the cool things
they had there. Sadly some of the activities were closed, due to
weather. So we weren't able to pan for gold or go in the mine. The kids although sad, found an awesome rock shop to use their vacation money to buy great stuff! Klai of course found lots of precious rocks for her
collection. Evee bought a cuddly horse. Rykel got the rattlesnake eggs
& Wyatt got a western rubberband gun. SAWEETT!

We did enjoy getting some yummy snacks and HOT CHOCOLATE from a lovely lady that was actually from Laie/Kahuku area. It sure is a small world.

Another adventure with great memories! I think these kids are gonna the roadtrip life on the mainland. Can't wait to to see what happens next!
