Mining for Gems

My brother invited us to go mining with all of his family.  We went to Cherokee Ruby and Sapphire Mine located in Cowee Valley, NC.   This is about 40 miles from our home.  Anyway, we arrived ready to mine and find our fortune.  None of us found our fortune, but we all had a really good time.
