Aug 2, 2011 - Panhandle usfs park

Hi. Today we drove about 77 miles down to Panhandle Federal national park to dig for Garnets! We left about 10:30 and it was about a 2 hr drive. Drove down 95 to Hwy 5 Went thru St. Maries and Santa and Fernwood towns! These are still grain and logging country. At St Maries it is where the headwaters of the St. Joe and Clearwater creeks flow into the CDA Lake! Was a great drive thru forest and rolling plains of hay fields. We arrived at the dig site about 12:30 had a 1/2 mile up hike to the site. Lots of folks nuts a we were. Or should say...
