Panning for Gold
Is there anything as exciting as panning those gravels for an elusive gold nugget? And there are plenty to be found, if you learn to do it right.

Two pools, plenty of gold pans, and as much time as you want. Plus, no mosquitoes or blackflies, no grizzlies and no glacier water!

Gold fever!
Panning for real gold!
