We started this trip at the Rock Shop in Bingham, New Mexico. We talked to the shop's owner, Allison Nilsen, and then signed in and paid our small fees to go digging at the Desert Rose Mine.

Oscura mountains Mine area
The North Oscura mountains. This is where the Desert Rose, Mex-Tex and, of course, the famous Blanchard claims are located. This is a view from the dirt road that leads to the mines. The Desert Rose can't be seen because it is behind a small ridge in the center of the picture.


Desert Rose mine Big Lizard
The main tunnel of the Desert Rose mine. Going inside is against the rules, and very dangerous, so don't do it! The mine entrance even has a guard! Don't mess with this guy.
