Did the $7 each lesson run by the park rangers, it was good, The troughs of gravel are seeded, so you do get to see if your technique sucks or not. Then you can buy a plastic pan and go down to the river where Marshall found gold and started it all and try your luck there.

The ranger said its best to go deep, so, even without any tools; all you are allowed are hands and plastic pan, I went deep. And after an hour I got one fleck of gold! A real fleck, from the very same place Marshall did 166 years ago!

Anyway, its a lot of fun. If anyone is out there its worth spending a day in lovely countryside (really, it is stunning) and having a go panning while slobbing out with a nice picnic.

Next time I have to sneak a shovel in with me..... Suspicious | :suss:
