    Default Interior Mining Trip

    Hello,

    Just got back from this year's mining trip. Not a good year for gold but had some fun and saw some things. Posted are a few pictures from the trip.


    Lone younger bull. They are still in mixed groups and on the move.



    One of my mining partners with a winter/wolf/bear/gut shot set of horns and skull I found.



    A mom and youngster on the move down the Taylor Highway.



    Nippy July morning at the Hilton.

    My favorite is the one of the caribou and calf walking across. The one of the fellow on the ATV is quite good, too.

    I know a few miners in the interior, by Harrison Creek and also mile 101 on the Steese. I sometimes use a gold detector, but haven't had the time to go back for a few years now.

    Default a couple more

    No need to spend time going through my black sands or spending my nuggests as it was a poor mining season. Plenty of time to play with trip photos though. Here are a few more.

    Blue Tarpville....aka claim camp.



    Dash of an old mack tractor in the area. I thought it was kinda neat.

    Thanks for looking and thanks for the comments.

    I also like the four-wheeler shot. Great expression on your partners face.
