    San Gabriel Mountians, national monument to be reversed.

    I seem to remember hearing about some of the ďnational monumentĒ areas thatís were declared a few years ago being reversed. Not sure if it was elections talk or post elections. Anyone else remember hearing about this? Heck I still donít get what the point of doing it with Azusa canyon and the east fork. While I lived up there for a few years and LOVED IT, this was years ago before the tagging and car break ins got so bad the sheriff donít even want to come up for calls.
    I visited a couple of years before and thought I wanted to go up and see what happened over the years. I recently thought about getting back into panning which I hadnít did since I was a kid.
    I bought a sluice, magic gold wheel pans and classifiers and now Iím reading due to national park declaration I canít even go sluice my old home area.
    San Gabriel mountains have nothing of national
    Interest.. their awesome local mountains but nothing special enough to be a national attraction. I think this blows and hope the talk of reversal goes through!

    Typing distracted and head cold so yea my thoughts might wander and all..

    Did you go? Just go. A lot of prospecting up there. Theyíve claimed panning is illegal for years. Itís not but theyíll tell you it is.

    Yeah just go, seen people dig right in front of the rangers. They don't say a word unless you are digging above the highwater line, that's word on the river anyway. Although there is an uncirtanity if they will begin cracking down with the passing of "the East fork project"

    Tried to read that 404 or recently moved..
    I wonder if the ranger from when I lived up there still works there lol.
    Sitez or sights. Some great memories up there. And amazing the changes at the same time.
    I know one spot I want to prospect but it may have been wiped out when they made the east fork road continue.

    Haven’t went yet, I have just got the gear, I’m pretty much fully set up, other than a full size shovel. I think I’d probably pan till I found some good color then sluice some and bucket up
    Concentrated to bring home and gold wheel them.
    Now I need a day off work to go. Funny thing is my friends just think I’m nuts haha!

    I ran some already panned concentrated through my gold magic machine.
    Sucker does a nice job! I missed a few bits!!
    Ran a little bought pay dirt through it too.
    I’m pretty sure I’m seeing some micro gold and found a few chunks I’m actually not sure on.
    All while at work lol!!

    Zee K, have you been up to east fork lately,are people prospecting in the canyon. I hate to drive so far to find out. I'm hoping the rangers leave people alone
