The city of Nederland in the mountains close to Boulder has a mining museum with a interesting display of various mining equipment. They periodically have classes on gold panning so we attended one to see how we would do. It seems even more difficult than I thought to use a pan, but we did manage to find some small pieces. Doesn’t hurt that they spiked each container with a couple pieces. Afterwards we had a picnic for lunch where I recorded the video below of Nora’s joke.
