the kids had a great time walking through the mining which was not under ground, but above ground. You didn't find any substantial amount of garnet, but to the kids finding the beautiful pieces of rock was like a gold mine. Kept them busy the whole tour and didn't get bored.

This was great fun during our Lake George trip. I was picturing a cave that we'd crawl in, but it's really just a big open pit where you pick up garnets. Most of the ones you'll find are not valuable but they are pretty. You can use a pick to open rocks and look for pure garnets, too. You pay per pound of rock you take with you. One guy hauled a huge boulder in his car, thinking he could take that home since it wasn't pure garnet. But they charge you for any rocks you take, not just the garnet segments. It's fun and gives you a unique souvenir.
