Day two, Fairbanks

This is how to get rich. What an interesting day. We spent it with our Fairbank friends who operate a gold mining business. We experienced the total operation and soon came to realize how difficult this pocess is. We were able to pan for gold and did find some flakes. We also heard the story of the fireweed plant. When the last flowers appear on the stem summer is over.It is also the first plant to appear after a forest fire. We ended our day at The Turtle Club enjoying the best prime rib ever!
