Description: Wandering the deserts of Nevada near Sand Mountain - 16 miles was how far down the old mine road I went to find a nice gully of crystals and I just thought of what it must have been like back in the days of gold/silver/etc. mining.
I really liked the count down you used in this, it made the story more intense. I love pieces that have real life history added in it. you spun a tale of present and past as if they were one. Very good writing and details. Isn't great what can inspire you at times? Great story Tiff.
