 ;D ;D ;D Randy, Thank you very much for the first class invitation to have a look at your awesome Pictures <-good_>
I am still waiting for a single pan like this :) Still not happened jet, but every time out there you get a little smarter.
Also I think when you are old and tired you can recall all the good time and hustle you had out there with all the great adventures.
It gives you something to dream about.
Keep up the good work, and get that rusty dirt out of that Water - you should keep that creek clean ;)
I wish you plenty more of those wonderful Pans!!!! {cool^sign} {cool^sign} {cool^sign}

Cheers ;D

That is most excellent!!! Most of us only dream of pans like that. I visit Idaho quite often and always wonder the history with natives, gold, David Thompson ect. Seems like a nice place to prospect

Thank you all for your refreshing comments. No time like the present to look for gold.

You've heard the term, "They (Chinese / 49ers) got it all." And I say to this,,, no they didn't. I am still working the old bench area which by the way, is near an old tailing pile. I call yesterday's work, "A cut above the rest." What pond water that does remain in this area has made working the bedrock a tremendous task. A problem I'll gladly accept knowing that there is a potential find for gold.

*For every great pan that is credited with a photo, there are a dozen or so average to mediocre pans that have been perhaps over shadowed. It is because of these pans that keeps the "dream" alive.

I'd like to show you an example of such a gold pan - yesterday's find. Note the two pockets of bedrock that where worked with low water.
