Snowed Inn - Panning for Gold in Canada, in the month of March !
Can you believe they are still calling for Major Snow Storms on the North East, US and Canada ? It is almost the middle of March !!! What is a Prospector to do ? OK, we dig out the sled, build a fire next to the criek and melt the earth; we chisel away with a pick axe until a few grains of sand begin the break apart. We haul the bits of frozen earth back to the cabin where we have a sled with hot water..... we melt the bits of ice from the stream and we pan for gold. Then we go drink inside, drink hot chocolate and warm up to go back out.
