Five more locks and another 26 miles brought us to Herkimer. Herkimer was our last mail drop until we arrive in Charlevoix. We took a cab to the Herkimer Diamond Mines to hunt for gems in the two mines they have. We came back with 2 large rocks that look promising – more later. A few miles up river is the home of Remington Arms. although we did not tour the plant or museum we received a report back from some friends that it was an interesting stop.
