American Gold: the best kinda gold ever

placer gold
I am always championing the gold miners I meet.

A big ol' pile is fun to pick it up and hear it pour back into your pan.

I can just imagine the old timers back in the day, the incredible odds they faced. The tremendous work they did to wrestle the gold from the earth. Hoping to go back to their families to bring them a better life.

The west was settled and explored by these robust and hardy people and they set the stage for America to be the great place it is today. The prospectors, explorers and adventures is a big part of what the United States was and still is today.
