If getting a little dirty bugs you don't go. And you can get as dirty as you want. I will be back looking for my diamonds!

This place is wonderful for families. My son loved the experience and was thrilled to have found some wonderful rocks in the process. We didn't strike it rich lol but we made memories that are priceless and will be talked about for a lifetime.

About 40 miles. But the trip has some beautiful scenery. The small village of Washington was very interesting to check out on the way back.
