Somewhere in Death Valley - Australian corkscrew collector Nick Hunt arrived in the United States a few days ago for a cross country trip. After visiting a couple of collectors in Southern California, he headed for Las Vegas to spin his Wheel of Fortune in hopes of amassing great wealth to purchase a carload of corkscrews during his trek. He's backtracking a little bit to Monterey, California for this coming weekend's meeting of the Canadian Corkscrew Collectors Club.
During his wait for the weekend meeting, Nick took State Route 190 for a brief visit to Corkscrew Peak (5804 feet) named after its twisting, corkscrew-like exposures of the Lower Cambrian Corkscrew Quartzite
Corkscrew Peak is in the Grapevine Mountains Range
Following the CCCC meeting, Nick will head East for an October meeting of the International Correspondence of Corkscrew Addicts. During that meeting he will share some tales with fellow members of two other clubs he belongs to: Smith Mountain Lake Corkscrew Coveters (SMLCC) and the Patpong Corkscrew Club (PCC).
