Crystal Sanctuary

Four years ago today, February 8th, of 2016, out in a storm with my niece and nephew, Virginia and Diego Bravo, we came upon a sanctuary of crystal.  The land was enveloped in snow.  For my friends, being in a snowstorm was an exhilarating experience, and for me too, but something special for them, because [...]
