We visited the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park (Sutter’s Mill). For ten bucks, we learned how to pan for gold. Step one was to buy our gear. Step two was to apply hand sanitizer. And step three was to pan for gold. Who knew it was so simple! I’m gonna be rich! Rich!

The moment after James Marshall discovered gold at Sutter’s Mill. . . and the moment before his partners hacked him to pieces. Watch your back, dude!
