california’s gold

The Washington Post has an article about out-of-work people heading to the Sierra foothills to pan for gold.  Which brings to mind one of Mellowcat’s favorites, Bacon and Beans from a Gold Pan.  We’ll have to see if today’s gold bugs have the perseverance and can-do attitude of their Depression-era counterparts, Jesse and Dot. It does sound like a decent way to spend the summer; if you’re out of work, why not spend your days by a Sierra stream?
