We had a great time at the Reel Mine on this third official club trip. We had worked several days before the dig to open up new areas to collecting. Despite the heat we had a great turnout and many members went home with some nice finds.

Working a trench.

Loretta's crystal, Loretta always finds her crystals without digging, she just walks around and picks them up!
