Mission Trails SOLD

Last week I got to hike through Santee's Mission Trails. So fun! We traversed rivers, clamored over small boulders, and waded through underbrush in our quest to be one with nature.

I love my country. Made with green magnesite, chocolate rhiolite, unakite, coconut shell, and antiqued silver squares.
