Best found at this location to date.These are found as loose singles on the ground surface from water action and freeze/thaw, but a little digging has started producing bigger and better xtals.

Excellent finds!  No doubt you will begin finding bigger and better as you continue to explore that area.   Cheesy

Yes dig more! A wise man once told me go deeper and the crystals will come.
