You would think sand would be easy to find in an area surrounded by 
gravel pits, but it's not. I have spent the last 3 hours driving from 
one gravel and sand dealer to another with no results. Everyone only 
sells white sand. Nobody has anything darker than an off-white.

Does any one know where you can get darker sand in the Los 
Angeles/Orange County area?
