Day 48: Gold Fever in Fairbanks

Day 48: Tuesday, July 2, 2013

To get up close and personal with the Alaska Pipeline we stopped at a park on our way to  tour the Gold Dredge 8.

The tour started with a train ride with demonstrations of gold mining techniques and a stop to learn about the dredge before we got off the train to pan for gold. We got to keep our gold!

As we were leaving the tour we stopped at a section of the pipeline to learn a few facts about it.
