Rowan Lytle's Photo Gallery

Fresh Material and Second Pit

Bishop Hill Schorl Locality, East Hampton, Middlesex Co., Connecticut, USA

If I remember correctly just before I took this I was collecting the last of a good exposed zone of big schorls.

Second Pit

Bishop Hill Schorl Locality, East Hampton, Middlesex Co., Connecticut, USA

This pit explored the upper end of the pegmatite and produced the the largest and sharpest schorls. By fall of 2013 when this photograph was taken I was already shewing through really tough bedrock and getting less and less worthwhile material out of it, so I moved back to the lower pit for a last ha-rah.

View of Swift River Valley

Kancamagus highway, Albany, Carroll Co., New Hampshire, USA

This is my favorite place to be, on a mountain off the trails in the Whites. This location had some huge open cavities, and I regret spending less time there. We may have found something special, I only wonder if I could find it again!

Empty Cavity

Kancamagus highway, Albany, Carroll Co., New Hampshire, USA

Another empty cavity found on the face of a mountain adjacent to the Kancamagus. This one had some foul smelling debris in it!

Empty Cavity

Kancamagus highway, Albany, Carroll Co., New Hampshire, USA

While hunting for Pete's Pocket, we got lost... by about two miles. We went up the wrong mountain! But we found some stuff anyway, and I wish we had stayed rather than going back to look for Pete's again. There were plenty of these pockets, though all were glacially scoured; and the view of the Kancamagus and the Swift River was fabulous.

Me in a Hole

Middle Moat Mountain locality, Hale's Location, Carroll Co., New Hampshire, USA

Don't worry, I didn't dig that hole. Someone did break the rules though, and I thank them: they missed a nice amazonite pocket by a few inches!

Unidentified Iridescence

Great Hill Pond Brook pegmatite, Cobalt, East Hampton, Middlesex Co., Connecticut, USA

A piece of schorl with unknown iridescent coating immediately after finding. After a month it has begun to deteriorate and is barely visible.
