Utah's West Desert - Sightseeing

Alaska Tim is in town for a few days so we decided to get the weekend started a little early. We headed out to west-central Utah in search of topaz at Topaz mountain, but didn't find a single crystal. Apparently the selection had already been picked over. Then we headed north to Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge. I didn't even know this place existed - it was incredibly beautiful. On the way home we tried our luck in the Dugway Geode beds, but had about as much luck as we did at Topaz mountain.
