I went here with a friend last May! Digging for opals!! I was hoping to find one of those opalized tree cones but no such luck. I did find lots of neat rocks and an opalized twig. We had loads of fun, it is way out in the middle of nowhere near the Black Rock desert. Lots of travel on dirt roads. A wrong turn lead us down a little road just covered with obsidian!! We got a great haul and there are just tons of people living out there on their claims in travel trailers, like tiny homesteads, just living the life! Took lots of pictures and one day soon I will post them. They do have a very informative website and a Facebook page if you want to check it out. We had a really fun afternoon doing this!
