This one of many true beauties in the world of treasure finds! The gold nugget discovered is 5 pounds! Michelle Shultz for KCRA.com went into detail on just how amazing the gold nugget really is. She said, “The Butte Nugget, as it’s called, is about 80 to 90 percent gold and is said to be worth about $350,000!” According to Schultz, the large gold nugget will be displayed at the San Francisco Fall Antique Show and that the nugget was found in July of this year. What are your thoughts on this find? I’m amazed!

We like the idea of venturing out into unknown areas and with that in mind, images of dark forests, large spiderwebs and creepy buildings come into our head. As a travel and literature lover, one example that stands out clearly in my mind is the image of the dark, abandoned fortress known as “Dol Guldor” in J.R.R Tolkien’s Middle Earth. For those of you that know the series, the fortress was far from abandoned! :0 People like to explore the areas that bring out there curiosity and test their courage. Just like in the stories we love, we are drawn to exploring what is out there; even if that means being brave and defending what we care most about. Halloween is one time of the year, that people especially let this love of exploring the creepy and bizarre places come out.
If you are looking for some unusual places to visit that will test your courage and even give you some memories you will never forget, we recommend you check out our “Scariest Places!” board on Pinterest. If you happen to find some interesting items, that is great too! We love being the inspiration and recommendations from others for where to go.

There really are amazing things to dig up that shed light on past civilizations. When I saw this story, I felt an even greater need to travel and explore, so I can see if I discover something unique like this. Others in my family have always been interested in archaeology, me included, thus, my curiosity peaks when I read things like this. One of things that is so interesting about this, as The Shield Gazette pointed out, is that the treasure found was discovered by an amateur archaeologist. I love reading news about discoveries from amateur treasure hunters because it helps to solidify the fact that anyone can find something great!
According to the Express, centered in the UK, former Pirates of the Caribbean star Mackenzie Crook explains his thoughts on the hobby of metal detecting! I was very excited to read this. Not only do I find the show to be entertaining and humorous, but I like to hear what the actors think about the hobby itself. On the subject of treasure, Crook stated, “More often than not, you do not find treasure, but you never go away disappointed.” Personally, I can understand what he is saying. Read more
Just feeling the cooler air on my face yesterday made me want to be outside all day! As a true Floridian, I really appreciate it when the weather starts to get in the 70′s and below. Right now, I can feel how the weather has been shifting and with that in mind, I am really feeling fall on the inside. To me, one of the best things about fall is the outdoor activities; exploring and admiring the beauty of the changing seasons. Personally, I love going hiking or taking out my pinpointer around to find additional coins or other items. Read more

Imagine seeing gorgeous images of faces on trees throughout the forest while treasure hunting or on another adventure. They remind me of the rich fantasy stories I read and still do read to this day. DL Cade for Peta Pixel shed some light on the beautiful faces being shown in the forest. In the article, DL Cade mentioned that Italian photographer Elido Turco spent four years capturing an invisible world of “dream creatures” that would gaze at him as he passed by. DL Cade mentioned that Turco took photos of the tree bark and mirrored the pictures he captured.
For years, Turco explored and searched for the faces and one day, according to the article, he let his curiosity take over by mirroring each image on his computer. I have to say, after looking at Turco’s photographs, each image is just exquisite. They make me think of hidden worlds, stories, magic, etc. I can just look at them for a very long while. I feel calm as well. In a way, I believe images such as these help others to appreciate nature more.

What are your thoughts on Turco’s images? What do you feel when you see them?
