I was planning a trip around Georgian Bay Ontario in late July, early August before it gets too cold. (Combined fishing/ rock hunting trip) I understand there are Garnets up there and I have always found the Great Lakes area to be rich in interesting rocks.
In the Fall we are going as a group to Arkansas to dig at Crater of Diamonds. Since that will only be a day trip (and I doubt it will be all that fruitful) I was hoping to find other interesting areas to dig for rocks in that area. We will be staying in the Hot Springs area for about a week. Any ideas?
