Panning For Gold
Boulder Creek....Bonners Ferry area
This is my youngest son, Aaron, panning for gold on Boulder Creek during our 2003 family campout. The only thing I can say is he didn't get rich but had a great time. There is also a ghost town nearby with old buildings (some still standing) and a graveyard, also lots of exciting history about a town called Leonia that my son Leigh is researching.

One of the tourist spots here has the same thing, panning for gold. It's more like washing dirt, but one visitor did get a few flakes of gold (more like luck than anything else). Generally, everyone enjoys themselves.
And, no, I haven't done it. Colorado's gold is in hard rock mining.
