Thanks for sharing 63. How many of those pickers/nuggets did you find with your Whites?

Herb--it's sure great to see you posting again. I'm hitting the hills again next week--hopefully we'll find some nice stuff. I hope you get a chance to get out again. So sorry about the frustrations you're going through at work--that really can't be any fun. Hang in there.
All the best,
Nothin' quite as fun as chasin' sassy gold!

Thanks for taking the time to take us all to places where we would rather be. Great shots

Hang in there Herb, there's always next year.. I have so much going on right now I haven't been able to get any gold yet this year. That sucks since I'm only a mile from the river.

Lots of fond memories for you in those pictures Herb...thanks for sharing them. The frustrations of your job will fade away quickly when you find the time to get back to the mountains....just part of life I think...the good, the bad and the frustrating.
If Gold is where you find it, I need to look somewhere else.....

I'm glad you've enjoyed the pictures as I enjoyed sharing them. The water fall picture, that is my son taking a dunking in the falls and enjoying every minute of it. We hiked up this creek over exposed bedrock and the day was especially hot. He wanted to stop and go back so I asked to just let me go around one more bend, my kids know from experience that that is usually a mistake on their parts to let their father do that. I went around the bend, spotted the falls, went part way back and waved for my son to come ahead, he did releuctantly and spent the next hour cavorting in the falls and pool. When my turn came I found it to be equally enjoyable and as I looked out from the water breaking over my back I noticed something odd on the hillside, a straight horizontal line. To my way of thinking this is unusual for Ma nature so after a good long soak I climbed up the hillside to find an historical placer mine with old tree trunks being used for timbering. I looked in but that was as far as I went. Next I climbed further up the hill to what looked like a clearing only to find the trail we'd hiked coming into the canyon. When it was time for us to head back to camp I told my son he had two choices, either back down the hot bedrock or along the hiking trail up the hill. He did not believe me that the trail was "right there" but it sounded better to him than the open bedrock. He was amazed when we cleared the lip and there was the trail.
Myself and the tent is another wild outback place with its own rattle snake den, an oasis at a large pool of water fed by a small water fall, a hard rock gold mine oh and I almost forgot all the beauty that Ma nature and the good Lord could think of to put in one place. Gorgeous country!
I plan on being able to share some pictures once I Do Get Out this year so stay tuned......63bkpkr

I'm glad you find relaxing times. I just got myself a Whites GMT Goldmaster E-Series in the winter months, now the weather is getting good and I hope to find many enjoyable hours on the hunt. I am excited on all the Weee Weee hits as you know. I hope to find a good ol nugget to have as a trophy. I already have good excercise and fresh air which is golden to health the way I look at it.... Good luck and may you find the nuggets "Big Brothers"!
