It's 5 AM and I'm all loaded up and headed for the Bear river campground for a little prospecting. I've never been there before so I don't really know what to expect but it'll be fun in any case. I hope I'll have a couple pics to post of my day later. Wish me luck!! :D

Sorry, no pictures yet, but the weather took a lot out of you...

We were there on Saturday, quite a bit of people, got hard trying to squeeze another sluice in the river, LOL.

Had a great time though.

Was there Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Went past the power lines from camp site four. Weather was perfect and we discovered some fines to specks. Dug down 4'. There was a gray layer that was compacted but broke up in our tromel. Most of the gold was in that.layer.

I found a good hole in the Land Mine area, trying to swing another trip next week before the hole gets dug up too much : )
