i wasn't a big fan of mining for diamonds. it was too hot there and you really only find neat looking rocks. the idea is cool, but the execution of it, not so much.
I left that part out because...you know, to each his own. But yeah, that diamond mining was a little much, and hot as hell when we went. The thing the kids talked about the most about that town though was that there was a slaughterhouse right across the street from where our hotel was!
Crystal mining was still hot as hell, but more fun. You go in this little podunk store and they sell you a map that shows you how to get to the crystals. It's way the hell out in the middle of nowhere. You pull your car in, and then get out and there's a big old pile of red rock, and crystals just laying around everywhere. You can take as much as you want.
