Diamond Fever

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!
