Great family vacation places to pan for gold or dig for precious stones?
Great vacation places that offer people a chance at panning for gold, or digging for precious stones and metals? I know of Gem Mountain, and the Arkansas diamond fields, but, are there any others and what do we need to know to be successful?
How about Northern California's Gold Country? The 49ers did not get all of the gold. To this day, there are people who head out to tributaries of the American River to pan for gold, after a big storm has passed. (The Summer months are mostly dry, and a little too hot.) However I don't know any of the 'secret' places.
I have not heard anything about fossicking for gemstones locally.
Three potential hazards to be cognizant of:
•Paranoid cannabis farmers. That's why you should not hike off-trail in the foothills. (The high country is a different story.)
•Mountain lions and rattlesnakes. Take common-sense safety precautions.
•Poison oak. Learn what it looks like, and steer clear of it. It can cause very itchy rashes. But there's no poison oak locally above 4000 feet elevation.

If wisdom is more precious than gems, then why are we teased with a heaven lined in silver and gold?God tells us not to seek such things as silver or gold, but to seek knowledge of the word and wisdom to see the light. So if we receive the "light", then we have passage to heaven...
