Beautiful warm day.–Road trip to Crater of Diamonds State Park.–First video post from new camera.

We took a drive today down to the southwest part of the state to Crater of Diamonds State Park where anyone – for the price of admission – can prospect for diamonds and “Any diamonds, semi-precious stones, rocks or minerals you unearth are yours to keep, regardless of their value.”  We didn’t do any digging this time, but probably will go over some time for a day or two, just to say that we did.

While we there, we checked out the campground and took a short hike on a trail that’s next to the campground. 

After I started this contract job, I bought a new camera.  The previous camera had been banged around quite a bit over the last four years and the LCD screen is broken.  The new camera is a recently released Pentax with a lot of nice features – it’s certainly more user friendly – including the capability of video.  It really seems strange shooting video using a single lens reflex, but here’s the first uploaded video:

The recently renovated campground at Crater of Diamonds State Park near Murfreesboro, Arkansas, has full hookups and other amenities at each campsite. A paved handicap accessible trail leads from the campground to the banks of the Little Missouri River.
