    Nothing wrong with that.
    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    I worked very hard for that gold... enjoyed it though. Altitude and sun were both very intense.

    Granite Post Falls

    Back in Switzerland and one of those days where everything just clicks and is perfect... rounded off by a steady stream of good gold. (Just the bigger bits in the picture... plenty of fines to work through at the end of the season.) All finished off with a lovely swim.

    First day of 2020 back at the stream... Well happy with the result.

    A nice bit of self isolation. Stay safe everyone.

    1st November - Coin Bank

    Somewhere totally new... totally apprehensive... and it rained... persistence really does pay off though 🙂 A late start to the season and now trying to pack the trips in before the snow comes....

    Ive named it coin bank because a coin turned up in the sluice!
