We broke apart rocks and stones hunting for even a small piece of a diamond...
The signs of past finds are around the crater area pushing you along to keep looking.
We ended up finding a lot of great stones, agates, and some lamproite, but no diamonds.
The Bean found a big agate and was pretty stoked about it.
We cleaned off our shoes and decided to call it a day.
Our finds were interesting and we brought them back to Oregon with us.
The Crater of Diamonds State Park is a fun spot to spend the day. It's located in Murfreesboro, Arkansas, and offers a great experience in the way mining was done in Arkansas.
After the Crater of Diamonds we headed to the birthplace of former President William Jefferson Clinton in Hope, Arkansas.
We loved visiting the birthplace of Bill Clinton because we finally got to stamp off one of our National Park visits in our passport book.
Great visit to the Crater of Diamonds and to Hope, Arkansas, to see the birthplace of Bill Clinton. Arkansas has a lot to offer and these two places are definitely worth the visit.
