Irene & Columbus Day Gold!

Then on Saturday went up to Split Rock and started in on the clay layers there. WOW, good stuff! Before long Art & Bob joined me with their prospecting companions and we had a great day. The tourists were stopping by to take pictures of the “funny people in the river”. Here are a couple shots:
