Tom is an outdoor photographer by trade and he was working up on the side of a mountain that over looks Salt Lake City. He had taken his ring off and put it in his pocket when he first stepped outside and then proceeded to hike up to the trail where he was taking photos. At some point, he reached into his pocket to pull out some items and that’s when he realized his 14k white gold wedding band with dinosaur bone inlay was missing!
I met Tom and his wife Lexi the next night to help relocate the ring. It was very cold up there on the side of the mountain and it was pitch dark. We made our way up to the furthest point on the trail where Tom had realized his ring was missing. I started to detect a long both sides of the trail as we headed down the mountain. It didn’t take long to get a signal in the snow and sure enough it was his ring! So glad we decided to work our way back from the furthest point cause it was basically at the end of his path. Tom and Lexi were so excited to see the ring! They are making plans to move cross country in the next few months so getting this ring back was a big relief! On a personal note, I think Tom’s ring is the most unique ring I have ever found with a metal detector! Overall great experience and wish Tom and Lexi the best on their next adventure!
