Mine for sapphires in the Sapphire Mountains
Discover your inner miner by spending an afternoon panning for sapphires of all colors at the base of the Sapphire Mountains. Mines in the area once provided sapphires for use in Swiss watches. Now, they are some of the few operational sapphire mines in the country. Wear your play clothes—it’s a hands-on kind of place. Depending upon how you handle your sapphire gravel, bucket and wash screen, this may just be the dirtiest, good, clean fun you’ll ever have.
Twice-daily on-ranch adventures are included in your stay
