Photo of the week: Panning for gold

Breckenridge, CO

Gold panning at the Country Boy Mine in Breckenridge, CO

Breckenridge Colorado was a gold rush town. The old Country Boy Mine, now open as a tourist attraction, is a fun place for families to visit in summer. It’s an old mine from the heady days of Colorado  gold mining. You can tour the mine, see old mining equipment and the best part; you can pan for gold. If you’re lucky enough to find some, you get to keep it.  Alas, our panning didn’t turn up any riches. Nonetheless it was a golden experience for the whole family.
