Panning For Gold in Alaska

Panning For Gold in Alaska

This summer we decided to try a little gold panning. We had the materials we needed and a spot in mind.

None of my family member or myself are experienced in gold panning AT ALL, but we thought it would be fun to give it a go.

Do keep in mind that the water from this creek is about 45F.

We still are not sure if we got real gold, but we are sure that there was a lot of fools gold. Either way it was a fun hike up the river.:)

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Who knew these cute little guys could be used as accessories!

If you have ever seen the kids movie “Aquamarine” then you will know where I got this idea from.
