Looking in the Anchorage, AK area
I'm new to rockhounding and am in Anchorage, AK for the next couple of months. I was wondering if there were any good places to go around here. Crow Creek is closed for the season. I've gone to Worzonof(?) Point, had fun but didn't find anything. Particularly looking for gold, tourmaline, garnets... but any other cool finds would be great too.
Also, I'm looking for a book that shows what stones look like in the rough, when you pull them out of the ground, before cleaning/polishing. All the books I've looked at at the library and bookstores only show "finished products."
Would love some insight.
