Glass Buttes


I just spent the most wonderful weekend rock hounding with the members of the Mosaic Guild of Central Oregon.  We went to Glass Buttes outside of Bend and gathered fabulous obsidians of all colors – some with greyish streaks, some mottled with mahogany, some transparent with black striping.  It was a beautiful sunshine-filled day…Patty Buckman, one of my hosts, prepared the most wonderful picnic lunch and we all sat around telling stories and sharing ideas…after a day of strenuous rock collecting and holding our breath as the cars rocked back and forth over rutted roads, Rita Dunlevy and her gracious husband, John, hosted a lovely evening with dinner and way too much prosecco…I had a delightful time and can’t wait to return the favor here in Portland (although they placed the bar rather high)…now I just have to decide what to do with all this natural glass…stay tuned…
