We spent half of Friday seeing Dawson City's shops and museum, then we went to Bonanza Creek and panned for gold! Dad bought a panning pan in a shop and we found two shiny flecks that possibly could be gold. That was fun :) We also saw a gold panning demonstration at the museum and there were industrial mining operations along the road to Bonanza Creek.
Since we had those first few days with tons of wildlife sightings we really haven't seen that many animals. We were pretty high up in the mountians, so I'm hoping there will be more once we come down a bit. At one point, our elevation was 4200 feet above sea level. Our ears were popping!
I was happy to get a good shot of a cow moose. I also got a magpie, some weird water bird I don't know what it is and a beautiful yellow butterfly.
