Hi Zoe -  I'm an unofficial amateur rockhounder with a very modest collection I've gathered and purchased over the years (starting with picking up rocks along rivers as a kid while my dad was drift boat fishing). After looking at your site, I want to do some exploring with my kids!

Anyways, nice job on your website!  I will use it to plan a trip with my kids, and will recommend it to others!  Thanks.

This site is awesome.  Gator Girl, your rock!  If you ever visit Montana again, I suggest checking out Lolo Pass near Missoula.  I have found very nice Quartz crystals at this site.  Again, great site.  Best on the web.

 - Ryan, April 11, 2013

My granddaughter & I are amateur geologists.  I love your suggestions and the detail of your information (especially the reminder about legal issues in collection).  Looking forward to lots of fun exploring based on your recommendations!

Hi Zoe.  I'm a casting director in Los Angeles and am under contract with ****** Productions.  We are looking to develop a TV Series on Rockhounds!  Please let me know if you're interested, if you can refer me to some great rockhounds, or help get the word out!  Thanks!

My daughter loves rocks...period.  In a few years she wants to go to college and study to be a geologist. It's how she views God's creation.  Since I adore her, like any father, I have tried hard to find her places to look for rocks, gems, etc.  When she was very little, she would collect rocks, wherever we would travel, in a little sock and sling them over her tiny shoulder.  Her love has become my hobby too now.  We both LOVE your website.  We can't thank you enough.  What kind of wonderful person would put all this together for others to read and enjoy.  From this father to you...THANK YOU!  May God richly bless you!!

Very impressed with your site!  It’s nice to see such an amazing site done in such a professional way by an obviously talented young lady.  Your parents must be so proud of you!  Keep up the great work ….  Take care and looking forward to seeing you describe more adventures!

 - Mike, March 24, 2013

You have a great website ….

 - Tom, March 24, 2013

Hi Gator Girl!  I just stumbled across your website, and I thought you might want to add a new location to your North Carolina listings in your State-By-State section.  This is a fee dig location, but the staurolite is abundant here and well worth a visit.  Here's a link to the information about it, if you'd like to check it out and share it with visitors to your site [see North Carolina section, which has been updated].

 - Steve, March 20, 2013

Thank you for identifying my rock.

- Lynette, March 19, 2013

Hi!  I just found your website and am thrilled!  It's obvious you are passionate about rockhounding and have a blast doing it.  I live in Utah with my husband and 4 kids, and we also love rockhounding.  As you know, Utah is an awesome place to rockhound!  How do you have enough time for your adventures?  Are you a home-schooler?  How have your parents helped you develop your love of the natural world?  My husband and I want our kids to have a life-long love of nature and we do tons of hiking, backpacking, rockhounding trips, etc. and I just wonder if there is anything else you'd suggest.  Good luck with your future adventures!  Thanks.

 - Leah, March 6, 2013

I must say as a gemologist/rockhound I am very impressed with this site.  I will definitely recommend it to all my friends.  I am also very stoked to see kids that are into and appreciate minerals and specimens, very heart warming.  Also check out the oceanview mine, if you like, it’s in Pala CA, and I’ve found lots of great tourmaline, beryl, and spodumene crystals.  Keep up the collecting and get everyone you can into this great hobby!

 - Cameron, March 3, 2013

Hi Gator Girl - I love your site!  I'm going to suggest your site to a young friend who lives in California and is just now getting excited about geology.  Keep up the good work!

 - Janet, February 6, 2013

Girl, you are living the life I've always dreamed of.  Will your folks adopt me?  I love your website, easy to read, easy to understand, and so much great info.  I've only been to about half the states, but I too, collect wherever I am and now your website can assist me greatly.  Rock on!!!

- Julie, January 30, 2013

Zoe, I’d like to include a permanent link to your website on our [website].  This is where we provide our members with access to ‘Interesting Stuff’ and you website, in addition to being extremely well done (I’m envious) is VERY INTERESTING!  I’m sure a number of our members will be interested in visiting your website.

 - James, January 14, 2013

Hi Zoe, Thanks for the Gear Guide that you composed.  I would have missed so many things.  I am going to Mt. Ida and Lake Ouachita, Arkansas to hunt for crystals ….  Many thanks.

 - Mauri, December 2, 2012

I am the director of **** in Louisiana.  I'm always looking for ways to encourage children to explore the world of geology. You seem to be off to a great start! … Your rock collection and stories of adventures in rockhounding would be very inspirational and a perfect fit for this event.  …   Rock on!

Hello Gator Girl, my name is Phillip and I live in Palmer, Alaska.  I am a huge rockhound and found your site while searching the net for Alaska rocks and minerals.  You guys have built a great and very informative site!  I belong to two rock clubs here in Alaska … and we go all over Alaska looking for rocks.  Because Alaska is so large with so few roads, many of our trips are 4 wheeler, then hike in trips, often totaling a hundred or two hundred miles.  Some examples of our finds are agates, fossils, prehnite, calcite, aragonite, garnets, amber, concretions, labradorite, and gold, just to name a few.  We have found agates that weigh 150 pounds, ammonites that are the size of car tires, pleistocene bison bones, and pink and purple agate.  I love living here, there is so much cool stuff and many places that people don't ever see.  …  Again, great site and good hounding.

- Phillip, November 22, 2012 

Wonderful web site full of information and links to even more information.  In viewing your pictures, you were very lucky to have parents who exposed you to the geologic wonders around you.  Keep on rockin!

 - Brian, November 15, 2012

I am the editor of ****** Mineral and Gem Society, in ******, *******.  I would like to use some of the material from your website for our newsletters.  There is so much at your site that our club would find exciting and enjoyable to read.

 - Connie, October 27, 2012

Good afternoon!  I am a teacher at *** School District in Colorado.  My students have been using your webpage and brought to my attention how helpful it has been for their Science project!
As a thank you, one of my students, Danielle, suggested another resource: "40 Common Minerals - Tungsten, Silver, Feldspar & more!"
We would like to thank you again for the wonderful site!
