Emerald Village Quarry Pit

During a trip up along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, a friend and I stumbled across Emerald Village.  Its a small local tourist stop just outside of Little Switzerland, NC.  The quarry pit is pretty nice to me but I'd expect it to be exceptional during peak fall colors.  Since I'll be up around here in October I'll plan to stop by again to see for myself.  If you have small children, this might be a fun place to stop to pan for gems and gold.  There is a museum and tours available.  The specific address is 331 McKinney Mine Road in Spruce Pine, NC.
