Saturday we went diamond mining at Crater of Diamonds State Park. The weather was gorgeous with highs in the 70s and sunny. The process is digging a bucketful of dirt, panning the dirt in water and hoping you have a diamond. We panned along side fellow prospectors from Yellow Stone Park, Montana, Oklahoma and of course Arkansas. At the end of the day we were wet, dirty and happy. I do believe those attributes are signs of a day well spent. And next time I am sure we will find a 40 carat diamond!
