An end to an era....

An end to an era....

This last week came an end to an era in southern Utah as a whole. With the death of Ernie Shirley a few years back, the end was imminent. Thursday was a public auction that was for Ernies collection. A collection that for those who have never witnessed it, would most likely be unbelievable. I did my best to buy some of Ernies treasures, as everyone in attendance did. Somehow, Ernies spirit lives on in some of these rocks. The land was sold at the auction also...I guess all good things do come to an end.

Any idea who bought the property and what they intend to do with it?

It really is the end of an era. I can only think on one other rock shop out there right now that is anything like it. I'm very sad to see it go.
