Daddy Warbucks panning for gold in Bonanza Creek at Dawson City.

Some of the group crossing over the Klondike to go over the...

Crossing over, 2 rigs at a time.

Today we panned for gold at a couple of places (Richard did pretty well). It's amazing how many working claims there are just on the road by Bonanza Creek - liitle shacks and old RVs everywhere! There are also some bigger operations - so, there's still gold in them thar' hills!

We also watched as most of our tour group left today for the trip to Tok, AK. Many of them will be dry camping in highway pull-outs. About 5 of us decided to stay here in Dawson as planned, and just leave at 5:30AM before the other tour group leaves (they are going to start crossing at 7AM). So - for us there's another day of full hook-ups, WiFi, and, of course, gold panning.
