Our seventh visit to local businesses this week took us into the “rocky” world of Tom and Mae Johnson and their Mineral Rock Shop on Colorado Avenue in Old Colorado City. They have been at this location for over 25 years and have an unbelievable collection of over 6000 types of mineral rocks from around the world and a wealth of stories to go along with them. Tom is quite the artist too, and the shop also serves as a gallery of his beautiful paintings. From the front porch he and Mae pointed out an area at the top of the mountain range above us where some of these rocks are found. Thanks Tom and Mae for taking time with us today! It was truly an adventure!
