Collecting in the UP
Hello all you rockheads!
Hope everyone is having a good summer. It has been pretty nice, slow cool spring, only a few days of intense heat so far. I hope the cool trend holds, I am going up to the UP to collect the week of July 24 - July 28. I need some help knowing where to go for collecting. I understand that it is a business but are all the mine dump collecting sites as expensive and as limited as the Caledonia seems to be??
I thought I might plan one whole day of copper collecting, all of my children are joining me up there, we will be camping in Houghton. I have not been up there in 10 years and I don't know where to start with planning. I did visit the Caledonia website where I could reserve a day but it is $80 per person for 3 or 4 hours of collecting. There is a less expensive/more restrictive option but this is not what I remember when I was up there last. Anyone able to suggest even a person/club to contact for information?
Thanks for any help I can get...Cori in Wisconsin
