  • This is a great little place to stop and get yourself a few garnets these garnets are a red maroon color and you can find them in all kinds of sizes they're easy to find and not very hard digging. Me and the wife went up there earlier this spring had a great trip we started looking around started finding garnets and we couldn't stop we brought home about 40 different gems all different sized with the biggest one about the size of the tip of my thumb. If you're going to plan a trip make sure to bring some type of screen or sieves and a shovel and pick with those simple tools you'll surely be finding garnets in minutes. Also depending on what time of year you come some good bug spray would be recommended.
  • Met some good people and had good fun digging for garnets.
