We pretty much hit the floor going today. We had two excursion we were going to do. We loaded on the bus to go panning for gold. We stopped in the area where the gold dredge # 8 was located. We had to walk under the famous Alaska oil pipeline to get to the little train that carried us up to pan for the gold. It was a cute little train and we had a narrator tells us about what all the tools were used for on getting the gold out of the land.
Then we were given a pan and a bag of dirt then went in and set down by some troughs where we would pan for the gold. It was neat but I could see if you were trying to get a lot of gold it would be hard work. We put both of ours together which the flakes were very small, it added up to twenty dollars.
