    Hunting in the snow finds.

    It finally turned cool here in NM, spitting snow most of the day, but, I was able to pull some silver from the local zoo.
    First hit was the El Paso bus token, read a 12-37 on the CTX. Just a few feet away I got a nice high tone and popped out the silver medallion. I moved over to an area that had given up silver in the past and hit the wheat, then the 57 Washington. I know it's not near as frosty here as elsewhere, but, gonna hit the 20's for a low tonight.

    That's plenty cold enough mate. Nice token and silver scores. Keep after it at the zoo.

    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

    Thankfully the ground here doesn't freeze in the winter. It'll be back in the 50's in a few days
